Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 12)

Our second Swan Lake performance took place yesterday before a full house. Not only our Kammertaenzer Alicia Amatriain und Friedemann Vogel, also the whole company provided an unforgettable performance. Highly concentrated and with great intensity John Cranko’s tragic love story was brought to life with dancing on the highest level. Bravo!

Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 11)

Our first Swan Lake performance was very special in several ways. Firstly because we performed exclusively for school children which meant that the house was full of about 2000 pupils. And also because our new principal dancer Ami Morita was dancing a leading role for the first time in her home country. Together with her handsome and most attentive prince David Moore as well as the whole company, Ami gave a stellar performance which is sure to inspire more than one young girl to follow Ami’s path and become a ballerina.

Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 10)

Once again a full day in the Bunka Kaikan Theater: in the morning a stage rehearsal and in the evening the dress rehearsal, both for Swan Lake. Parallel to all that there are more interviews and photo shoots taking place; the media interest in the dancers is high! Elisa Badenes and Adhonay Soares da Silva dance the dress rehearsal. Adhonay will have his debut as Prince Siegfried on Saturday here in Tokyo, we all wish him the very best.

Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 7 and 8)

We are back online with a recap of days 7 and 8 after yesterday‘s well deserved day off. On Sunday the Japanese audience in the completely sold out Bunka Kaikan Theatre rewarded our guest Mathieu Ganio and his Tatiana Elisa Badenes for their moving performance with standing ovations – and the enthusiastic autograph hunters defied the rain in front of the theatre. To make the day even more special, Adhonay Soares da Silva gave his debut as Lensky, next to Jessica Fyfe who performed the role of Olga for the first time with the Stuttgart Ballet.

On Monday most of the company enjoyed a most necessary day of rest – except some of the Principal Dancers and Miriam Kacerova and Roman Novitzky, who taught class and gave a workshop in contemporary choreography for students of the Tokyo Ballet School. See for yourself!
