The Royal Ballet Japan Tour 2019

Jun 21, 2019 at 6:30 pm - Jun 30, 2019 at 2:00 pm


The Royal Ballet is one of the great ballet companies of the world, a beacon in the cultural life of Britain and a driving force behind the development of ballet as an artform. Under the leadership of Director Kevin O’Hare, exceptional standards of artistry, creativity and stagecraft come together to produce supreme theatre. Since its foundation in 1931 by Dame Ninette de Valois, The Royal Ballet has developed great English choreographers and a celebrated British style of ballet. Today, attracted by its grand balletic tradition and illustrious heritage, a number of versatile dancers from all over the world join the Company, among whom are several Japanese dancers.

On this occasion, The Royal Ballet presents two program, Don Quixote and a gala program. Carlos Acosta’s effervescent production of Don Quixote, Marius Petipa’s 19th-century classic, is packed with exhilarating choreography and virtuoso dancing, its warmth and charm matched by the vibrant designs by Tony Award-winner Tim Hatley. The gala program will showcase the wonderful range of the Company’s distinctive repertory and feature the outstanding talents of the Principal dancers on the Japan Tour.
