JAPAN // NOVEMBER 2015 (Day 15)

The "snowbound" theatre in Sapporo!

The “snowbound” theatre in Sapporo!

Dear tour diary readers!

Today we send you a snowy “hello” from Sapporo … After our last performance in Toyko (the third Onegin with the dream couple Anna Osadcenko and Jason Reilly in the lead roles!) we traveled to the Island Hokkaido in the north of Japan. The journey took longer than we all thought, as nobody expected it to snow so much! Sapproro is covered in almost 50 centimetres of snow …

We only have a short “stopover” in Sapporo. Tonight is already the performance of Romeo and Juliet – with some exciting debuts: Miriam Kacerova and Constantine Allen will dance the star-crossed lovers Juliet and Romeo for the first time; the other debuts are Robert Robinson as Tybalt and Martí Fernandez Paixa as Paris. So a huge toi toi toi for all of them!

Tomorrow we will travel on to Osaka, our last stop for this tour …

JAPAN // NOVEMBER 2015 (Day 13)

Dear Tour Diary,

last night was a very special night as our principal dancer Roman Novitzky gave his debut as Onegin. It is no exaggeration to say that it was spectacular. With perfect calm, superb partnering and a very own interpretation, Roman delivered the performance of a lifetime.

His Tatiana was Hyo-Jung Kang who also threw herself heart and soul into her role. Angelina Zuccarini and Pablo von Sternenfels were a feisty and passionate couple as Olga and Lensky and Matteo Crockard-Villa gave his equally successful debut as Prince Gremin, every inch the aristocrat who presented his wife proudly and with great solicitude at his ball. All in all a very exciting evening which was rewarded with many curtain calls and a very enthusiastic audience.

Tomorrow is a travel day: the company flies to Sapporro. There the next debuts await us: Miriam Kacerova and Constantine Allen will give their debuts as Juliet and Romeo.

We will keep you posted!!!
