Orosman At Zafira, by Francisco Baltazar - The play Orosman at Zafira is a Komedya written by Francisco Baltazar, a renowned Filipino writer who wrote it for the Teatro de Tondo.. This theater form, Komedya, is not a comedy, but in fact a colonial Spanish drama that revolves around saints or warring kingdoms. However, this play deviates from the standard Komedya; original komedyas were about the Moro-Christian conflicts while Orosman and Zafira is about the characters rather than religion.
