"Performances in Japan"
 
   Does anyone know how to book tickets for ballet performances in Tokyo from overseas? Or where in Tokyo is it possible to buy them? I am trying to get tickets for Tokyo Ballet's Giselle, in September, which has Vladimir Malakhov and Julie Kent as guests.

Also I might be making a trip to Tokyo at the end of May, so if anyone has any information about ballet performances then, I would be very grateful.

Hi Shazna,
I'm glad you can visit Tokyo since many famous companies often tour there and provide some wonderful performances. May isn't really a popular season for touring companies, but here are some of the performances:

1) THE MATSUYAMA BALLET (Yoko Morishita will perform -- if you don't know her, she was a former partner of Nureyev and the first Japanese prima ballerina to ever win international acclaim)
*ROMEO AND JULIET, choreographed by Shimizu Tetsutaro
*May 2-6, at Orchard Hall

2) TOKYO CITY BALLET
*Ballet Concert (I don't know what exactly their performance will be but I assume it'll include some contemporary and classical pieces)
*May 13th, at Tiara Koutou Hall

3) STAR DANCERS BALLET COMPANY
*GISELLE (by Peter Wright, I think...)
*May 22 - 23, at Tokyo Bunka Kaikan

4) LYON OPERA BALLET
*1st pgm: CARMEN/SOLO FOR TWO, 2nd pgm: ROMEO AND JULIET
*May 24 - 31 at Akasaka ACT Theater

5) YAMAMOTO REIKO BALLET SCHOOL/COMPANY
*This isn't really a major company, but this school has got some students who have been winning major competitions worldwide. This time, they will be featuring '98 Varna Gold Medalist Yuka Iino, and the recent 2001 Lausanne Hope Prize Recepient, Momoko Hirata. Their performance is free and the students will be performing all the major classical pdds including "Raymonda," "Don Q," "Diana and Acteon," etc.
*May 13th (the venue isn't listed yet)

*For tickets for Tokyo Ballet, you can check out their website
at "www.nbs.or.jp" but I don't think their information about Malakhov's performances are up yet. They don't have online ticket orders available so I think you're just going to have to give them a phone call to get tickets at 03-3791-8888

*Shazna, if you have any other questions, please feel free to email me.

   I also just wanted to add that since it would be difficult for some of you to order tickets through their phone services (I'm assuming they don't speak/understand English well...) you can always send me an email and I will be willing to order tickets for you.

   Terry, many thanks for your help. Are you in Japan? Nothing is confirmed yet but could I have your email address? I think I may have to consult you about ticket bookings for the September Giselle. The May trip is still under consideration, perhaps it would be better to save the money for September instead if there isn't anything I really want to watch. Do you happen to know what the ticket prices are like and how far in advance I would have to buy them?

   Shazna-- Sure you can have my email address. If you click on the icon next to my name, I think it will automatically provide you with my email address. I also think that September would be a better time to visit Japan. But, October might even be better with Guillem's national tour throughout Japan and the New National Theater of Tokyo's (Japan's currently best home company) staging of MacMillan's Romeo and Juliet. Angel Corella will be guesting and dancing with a Japanese soloist from the company. I've also heard that Ananiashvili will be doing her self-produced gala performance (similar to the Boloshoi gala in London this June) in October or November. As for the ticket prices, they are very expensive. The lowest prices for these performances are likely to be around $50 US dollars, more or less...Usually, tickets go very quickly, especially for the performances of Guillem and Malakhov, as they are the two most popular foreign artists at the moment. But they are likely to be sold about 4 months prior to the actual performances, which will give you enough time to buy them, I hope!

Kevin -- The website was lovely! Also, the New National Theater of Tokyo has their homepage in English, and they have lists of their performances -- I thought you might be interested: http://www.nntt.jac.go.jp/

   Terry, thanks so much for your comprehensive information. It's amazing that there's so much ballet going on in Tokyo all year round.

By the way, a friend showed me yesterday this interesting Japanese website.

   It has been announced that there will be a "GOLDEN GALA OF RUSSIAN BALLET STARS" in Tokyo this September. The program will
consist of mostly classical repertory (Giselle, Flames of Paris, La Sylphide, Don Q, etc) and dancers will be mostly from Bolshoi and non-Kirov: N.Grazheva, T.Cherbrokina, S.Lunkina, N.Kurapvina, etc. (sorry for my misspelling!)

   Thanks for all the information! August - October sounds like a good time to be in Tokyo. Worth some serious thought.
