SALOME DIARY: Behind the veil …

Today we let you take another look “behind the veil” … but this time from a different perspective, respectively: photo-lense. As our photographer for the Salome diary, Roman Novitzky, will be also performing in Salome, he is very busy at the moment rehearsing and taking photos! So we are happy that our guest photographer Carlos Quezada has also been taking some photos for our Salome diary – while Roman was rehearsing …

JAPAN // NOVEMBER 2015 (Day 16)

We “survived” the short trip into the snowy landscape of Hokkaido and arrived savely in Osaka today.

But of course we have some impressions of our day in Sapporo to share with you – and also of the performance of Romeo and Juliet!

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 9)

Dear tour diary …

already two more days have passed during which we worked and experienced a lot … There were (and are still) many rehearsals for the upcoming performances – in which there will be some debuts: Miriam Kacerova and Constantine Allen will be dancing Romeo and Juliet for the first time in Sapporo on November 25 … but we also had many rehearsals for the Gala that we performed last night – in front of a fantastic audience with lots of „bravos“!

After the performance we had a little surprise for our Principal Dancer Alicia Amatriain who was awarded the German Theatre Prize Der Faust on Saturday: After our Resident Choreographer Demis Volpi accepted the prize on Alicia’s behalf in Germany (because she could not be there), the General Manager of the State Theatre Stuttgart Marc-Oliver Hendriks brought her the prize to Japan on the night of the Gala. This was the perfect ending of a wonderful performance …
