In Japan,now K-BALLET COMPANY has been performing "GISELLE"
from 1st Nov. to 9th Dec.20stages at many places.
First I'm so sorry to late telling this fantastic tour scadules
and now little by little I'm writing my reviews for these stages,
I have seen 4times already Mr.Kumakawa's Count Albrecht
has just been more and more excellent!!!,I'd seen as ever,
and I believe he'll be more to best to the final stage
of this tour and he has just grown up to another step of
his own stage as a Ballet Dancer more deeply!!!
Miss.Durante's Giselle of course fantastic and their partnership
was brilliant Her Giselle is living in a village on the stage and in the village she was loved by Albrecht,Hilarion,
her mother Bellta and her friends...all people loved
And the very very beautiful DESIGN of the stage has been
made by Mr.Peter Farmer and COSTUME SUPERVISOER for Mr.Peter Farmer is Mis.Diane Page!!! Especially marvorous!!!
About the details of the stage I'd like to write more
every Dancer has just performming as a living character
and the village itself surely there is!!
I'd like to write more and more, though it's too
personal to say my personal computer has just broken
and it is needed times to fix it up about two weeks or
more and I'm also having a little illness to cure
in myself, about which you don't care so I can't write
rapidly very sorry.
But of course I'd like to see and write more as possible
as I can,because you know,only a ONE stage
performs in every night and those are different
each other not a single stage as the same!!
