CHINA // OCTOBER 2016 (Day 8&9)

October 31st was our travel, of which we spent most time in airplanes and buses – our arrival in Bejing was just in time for rush hour …

On the next day our technical staff arrived early at the theatre to unload the boxes and began working on the stage and the costume department set up the dressing rooms in this huge theatre, the National Center for the Performing Arts.

Most of our dancers were able to enjoy a free day yesterday to explore the city – at chilly temperatures, but in bright sunshine!

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 …
