Greetings from Japan! I am very happy to be back in Tokyo, which feels so familiar yet remains fresh and exciting each time. This trip is made even more special by the presence of Sir Anthony Dowell, here to help me rehearse the role of Oberon in The Dream, which was created on him by Sir Frederick Ashton. A dream come true for me!
It is always a joy to work with Tokyo Ballet, and I look forward to the performances at Bunka Kaikan Theatre on Saturday 28th and Monday 30th April.
I am also thrilled that after dancing The Dream, I will come back twice more to Japan this year, to participate in the World Ballet Festival in August, and later in autumn with Stuttgart Ballet, to perform Onegin and Swan Lake.
All the best from Tokyo
