The last day in Tokyo ended with an intense performance of Swan Lake with Anna Osadcenko and David Moore in the leading roles. At the end of the many curtain calls, it comes to an emotional leave taking on both sides of the footlights as the company says farewell to the incredible Tokyo audience after seven performances. „Sayonara/See you soon!“ it says on the sign which hangs on the stage and we certainly hope that sentiment will come true! The next morning we depart for the airport to fly on to Fukuoka. The trip goes well and our colleagues from the technical crew, props, lighting, sound, wardrobe and make up head over to the theater already that evening.

When you performed Cranko’s Swan Lake in Tokyo 6 years ago, I chose not to see it because I didn’t know how different it was from Swan Lake performed by other ballet companies. Later, I read about his version in a magazine and became very interested. Finally, I saw it on November 11. It exceeded my expectation. Words are not enough to describe the greatness of this version that I felt. I was amazed by the fact that the feelings of the prince and Odette were vividly expressed. I had a great time. Thank you for performing it in Japan.
