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!

Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 6)

A triumphant evening for Diana Vishneva and Jason Reilly who received their own standing ovations and delivered their very individual interpretation of this Cranko classic. Pictures from a very moving evening.

Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 5)

What an evening!!! Standing ovations from the usually somewhat more reserved Japanese audience in the almost sold out Bunka Kaikan Theater. Lots of cheers for all the whole company most especially for Alicia Amatriain und Friedemann Vogel. Here a short video we’d like to share with you.

Japan Tour / November 2018 (Day 4)

The day of the premiere is getting closer; the dress rehearsal of John Cranko’s Onegin with the fantastic Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra under our Music Director James Tuggles‘ baton runs smoothly. Our strong and expressive Kammertänzer Alicia Amatriain and Friedemann Vogel take on the leading roles. We can’t wait for opening night!
