The “Ibong Adarna” . which was the drama adapted from is a sort of phantasy heroic poem. It is because it involves charming. fabulous animals.

The drama entreaties to the emotions of the audience to do it more “dramatic” . It besides features musical Numberss throughout the drama ( after all. the Adarna bird is supposed to sing ) .
In the portion one of the theatrical version of the heroic poem “Ibong Adarna” . the events are set in a fictional land called Berbania. It is where some of the chief characters of the narrative came from. The tree of Pierdas Platas in Mount Tabor is where the Adarna nests. It besides includes Armenia. where the charming well is located. where Don Juan. the supporter found and rescued Donya Juana and her sister. Donya Leonora.
In the portion two of the narrative. the events are now set in the land of Reyno de Los Cristales ( literally intending ‘Kingdom of Crystals’ ) . which is ruled by King Salermo.

Don Diego ( 2nd ) and Don Juan ( the youngest ) . One dark. King Fernando had a bad dream. He saw that his youngest boy and his favourite. Don Juan was thrown off in a deep well. The King started to acquire ill for unknown grounds. The trefoils tried to convey the King to his normal being. but to no help. His trefoil ( Medico ) told him that the lone manner for him to acquire back to normal being is to hear a cradlesong Sung by a fabulous bird called Adarna found in Mount Tabor. So King Fernando tasked his eldest boy to run for the said bird. Don Pedro went foremost and he reached the tree of Pierdas Platas. but he did non cognize that this is the tree where the Adarna nests during the dark. and when the bird sung its cradlesong. the prince fell asleep. When the bird finished singing its cradlesong. it pooped on Don Pedro and hence turning him into rock. The 2nd prince. Don Diego went to run following. Unfortunately. he had the same unfortunate destiny like his older brother. The land was numbering on Don Juan. so he went following.
The youngest prince has climbed through Mount Tabor. On the manner. he met an old anchorite ( or Ermitanyo ) which he helped. and in return. gave him tips about the charming tree of Piedras Platas and catching the Adarna bird. Don Juan successfully caught the bird and helped his two brothers to be human once more. Because of enviousness towards their immature brother. Don Pedro and Don Diego conspired to crush Don Juan to decease and the two so returned place with the Adarna. However. the king’s unwellness went worse because the bird. which saw the two princes what they did to Don Juan. ne’er sang a individual vocal. Fortunately. Don Juan has been healed by the old anchorite he helped in the mountain and came back to Berbania. King Fernando has known the truth when the bird started singing after seeing Don Juan and the male monarch went good and stronger than of all time. He wanted to penalize his two boies but Don Juan asked his male parent to merely forgive them for the interest of their household. The King granted his petition and asked the three princes to guard the Adarna bird during the dark. But alternatively of taking bends in guarding the bird. Don Pedro and Don Diego tasked Don Juan to guard the bird entirely. doing him tired and finally fell asleep.
The two princes connived once more to liberate the bird in an effort to set Don Juan into bad visible radiation by allowing the bird flight. Don Juan went off from the land so the male monarch won’t penalize his brother. King Fernando asked the two princes to look for Don Juan. They found him in Armenia. They decided to populate at that place. One twenty-four hours they found an interesting well. Merely Don Juan went down indoors successfully. He found two lovely princesses. Donya Juana and Donya Leonora which is held confined by a elephantine and a charming snake. Because of his accomplishments in contending. the mighty prince has killed the giant and the snake and saved the two princesses. Don Pedro once more. envied his immature brother. When Donya Leonora asked Don Juan to recover the princess’ pealing she forgot inside the well. Don Juan obliged and went back into the well. But Don Pedro cut the rope tied to Don Juan. go forthing him no opportunity to acquire back up above. The two brothers returned to Berbania with the two princesses. Donya Juana finally fell in love with Don Diego and they got married. On the other manus. Don Pedro did everything to court Donya Leonora but to no help because the princess loves Don Juan so much. Meanwhile. an enchanted fox helped Don Juan and was healed. The Adarna bird appeared all of a sudden and told him about the princess of Reyno de Los Cristales. the adult female destined for the immature prince. He rode an bird of Jove and flew to the charming land. He instantly searched for the princess and found Donya Maria Blanca. bathing in a pool. The immature prince instantly fell in love with the princess. but her male parent. King Salermo insists that the immature prince must first turn out himself worthy of her daughter’s love.
In malice of the “impossible” challenges the cruel male monarch has given him. he faced them all and succeeded with the aid of Donya Maria Blanca who finally fell in love with the immature prince. Because of this. the male monarch got huffy. and the two lovers tried to fly Reyno de Los Cristales. Donya Maria Blanca was cursed by his male parent to be forgotten by the prince Don Juan.

Don Juan returned to Reyno de Los Cristales with Donya Maria Blanca to pass the remainder of their lives as the new male monarch and queen of Reyno de Los Cristales.
VIII. Point of View.I could state that the narrative of the “Adara” is largely in 3rd individual point of position. with some exclusions of the narratives done by the storyteller in some parts of the narrative. The secret plan is blossoming as the drama goes on. as what I’ve seen in the drama.
IX. Conflicta. Major Conflicts1. The hunting for Adarna – this undertaking was foremost assigned to Don Pedro. so Don Diego. but they failed in capturing the fabulous bird. Merely Don Juan successfully captured Adarna. Because of this. his two brothers conspired in get ridding of their immature brother out of their enviousness. However. the old anchorite whom Don Juan helped earlier treated his hurts and the prince went back to Berbania. Because the bird witnessed what the two “evil” brothers did to Don Juan. it subsequently told in the castle what truly took topographic point in the mountains and King Fernando wants to penalize his two boies. but Don Juan requests his male parent non to. as for the interest of their ain household which his male parent obliged.
2. The challenges by King Salermo to Don Juan – the series of challenges imposed by King Salermo to Don Juan is about impossible to carry through. without the aid of Donya Maria Blanca.
3. The supposed nuptials of Don Juan and Donya Leonora – after returning from Reyno de Los Cristales. Don Juan is set to get married Donya Leonora. who waited for old ages for the immature prince to come back to Berbania. But at the nuptials ceremonial. Donya Maria Blanca shows up and reminded Don Juan ( through a “magic 3D powepoint presentation” ) of their adversities with Donya Maria Blanca. and their love. Don Juan is all of a sudden confronted with a job. who is he traveling to get married among the two princesses. Don Juan ended up get marrieding Donya Maria Blanca and the newly-wed twosome returned to Reyno de Los Cristales and ruled the land which the princess inherited the throne from King Salermo.
B. Minor Conflicts
1. Rescuing the two princesses from the well – Don Juan found Donya Juana foremost. being held confined by a elephantine. He slayed the elephantine and freed Donya Juana. but she told the immature prince that her sister. Donya Leonora was being held by a charming snake. So the immature prince went back down the well to contend the snake keeping Donya Leonora and rescues the princess after murdering the snake.
a. Sibling CompetitionKing Fernando has three boies. of which. Don Juan was his favourite. Because of this. Don Pedro and Don Diego got covetous of their immature brother. and ever find ways to discredit so that their immature brother would be blasted if anything incorrect happens ( like the Adarna “escaping” out of its coop ) . When Don Juan succeeded in capturing the Adarna. his two brothers connived to acquire rid of Don Juan while seeking to acquire the recognition for capturing the bird. However. the old adult male whom Don Juan helped while on his manner to the Mount Tabor helped him and treated his hurts. enabling him to return to Berbania.
B. Victory of Good over EvilI could state that the serpent keeping Donya Leonora in the “world at underside of the well” represent immorality in the book 1 of the narrative. As we all know. snakes are normally associated with immorality in literature ( like the narrative of the snake who tricked Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden which is found in The Bible ) . In the narrative of “Adarna” . the snake had charming powers than enables it to turn the caput that was antecedently chopped down. To salvage the princess. Don Juan killed the snake with the aid of a charming blade given to him by Donya Leonora.
In the book 2 of the “Adarna” . King Salermo gave Don Juan seven trials in order to turn out that the immature prince is worthy of Donya Maria Blanca. the king’s girl. However. the trials given to him were humanely impossible. like traveling mountains in a twenty-four hours. But Don Juan finally succeeded in carry throughing the trials given to him. with the aid of Donya Maria Blanca and her thaumaturgy. but King Salermo still refuses to allow this girl marry the immature prince. Don Juan and Donya Maria Blanca eloped. but King Salermo cursed Don Juan for him to bury the princess. and the times they spent together at Reyno de Los Cristales. However. Don Juan was able to retrieve Donya Maria Blanca when the princess attended the supposed nuptials of Don Juan and Donya Leonora. by conveying his memories of their love for each other and the times of adversities they spent together. In the terminal. Don Juan bid his parents adieu and went with Donya Maria Blanca back to Reyno de Los Cristales to govern the land the princess inherited from his male parent.
c. Love and FaithfulnessDon Juan has this trait that makes him fall in love easy with beautiful adult females. After seeing Donya Juana in hurt. he instantly rescued her from the giant. which made the two fell in love truly fast. However. when told by Donya Juana that her sister. Donya Leonora was still in “the universe at the underside of the well” . Don Juan went back down and found Donya Leonora. Don Juan besides fell in love with this princess for she is so beautiful. Finally. Don Juan settled with Donya Leonora. and Donya Juana went to Don Diego’s weaponries. When Don Juan arrived at Reyno de Los Cristales. he saw Donya Maria Blanca bathing in a swimming pool and felt love at first sight of the beautiful princess. He faced the trials given to him by King Salermo to turn out that the prince is worthy of the princess’s love. Donya Maria Blanca finally fell in love with the immature prince and even eloped King Salermo and Reyno de Los Cristales to return to Berbania. However. the expletive of King Salermo on the twosome took consequence when he returned to Berbania. The immature prince is set to get married Donya Leonora who he left behind old ages ago. but Donya Maria Blanca tried to reconstruct Don Juan’s memories with her and succeeded. Don Juan finally chose to be with Donya Maria Blanca. after recognizing the he and Donya Maria Blanca spent the good times and the bad while they were in Reyno de Los Cristales.
Eleven. ContemplationThe drama “Adarna” by Vlad Gonzales tells a narrative a spot different from its literary opposite number. However. the ethical motives of the narrative remain the same. It tells us that in the terminal. the good cats triumph over immorality. to make up one’s mind by following what’s in your bosom. and to be faithful. The scene at the nuptials ceremonial where Don Juan is set to get married Donya Leonora. when Donya Maria Blanca arrived is the portion of the narrative that struck me the most. This scene made me recognize that a individual must follow what’s in his/her bosom. and non what the people around him tells him what to make.
