"A PASSAGE THROUGH THE LIGHT - Maximilien Robespierre, the Revolutionary -"
In late-18th century France, citizens banded together to stand up and create the French Revolution, an event that also became the foundation for the way we live today. The revolutionary Maximilien Robespierre, one of many key figures in the movement who have been portrayed in performances by the Takarazuka Revue, was passionate about his ideals, though in the end the fire sparked by those very same ideals led to his undoing.
On September 14, 1791, Louis XVI finally recognized the Constitution the revolutionaries had sought ever since the beginning of their movement. The joyous citizens of Paris hailed Robespierre and his peers from the National Assembly for their tremendous accomplishment. However, the Constitution's recognition was only but the preface to a messy revolution...
Robespierre's fateful romantic ideals were what bound him and his comrades to rise up and work toward a solitary purpose. They were the basis for his convictions. This historical musical inquires into how this man bet his young years on the passions that burned within, pushing forward toward the peak of the revolution and sharing his ideas of "Freedom, Equality and Fraternity" to show mankind the correct path to take. This performance will feature the debut of the Snow Troupe's new top pair, Futo Nozomi and Kiho Maaya, at the Takarazuka Grand Theater.
A dazzling whirlwind of a revue about voyagers to bless Futo Nozomi in grand fashion as she, the recently appointed top star, and the new Snow Troupe embark upon their journey.
It begins with a thoroughly vivid prologue symbolizing the departure of a splendid cruise ship. The performers then wish Futo Nozomi the best of luck as the new top star with choreography inspired by her name and the four Chinese characters that make it up. Those characters mean: HOPE, OCEAN, WIND and BIG DIPPER.
You can look forward to an ultimate piece of entertainment that combines the allure of the new Snow Troupe plus the aesthetics of Futo Nozomi's portrayal of male characters as the otoko yaku.
