Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 14 and 15)

The last day in Tokyo ended with an intense performance of Swan Lake with Anna Osadcenko and David Moore in the leading roles. At the end of the many curtain calls, it comes to an emotional leave taking on both sides of the footlights as the company says farewell to the incredible Tokyo audience after seven performances. „Sayonara/See you soon!“ it says on the sign which hangs on the stage and we certainly hope that sentiment will come true! The next morning we depart for the airport to fly on to Fukuoka. The trip goes well and our colleagues from the technical crew, props, lighting, sound, wardrobe and make up head over to the theater already that evening.

Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 13)

Everything is running at top speed for the last two Swan Lake performances in Tokyo before we will leave for Fukuoka on Monday: Anna Osadcenko and David Moore rehearsed for their performance on Saturday morning while on Saturday afternoon Adhonay Soares gave his debut as Prince Siegfried alongside his swan queen Elisa Badenes. During the almost sold out performance he took the audience by storm and earned lots of spontaneous applause. Congratulations! Special mention must be made of our corps de ballet, especially the ladies, which has been dancing with unflagging enthusiasm and on a very high level in all performances.

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.
