Story

"Wind Over Yamatai-koku"

Our story takes place in ancient Japan, where numerous small states are engaged in a chaotic, endless web of conflicts. Yamatai-koku, the core member of the Wa-koku alliance, is one of the more powerful combatants, as it controls fertile lands. One of its enemies, however, Kuna-koku, has carried out numerous schemes to try and steal that rich territory.
After his parents are slaughtered by men from Kuna-koku's armies when he was only a child, Takehiko learns the art of combat in order to survive. One day, he saves a girl named Mana as she is assailed upon by Kuna-koku soldiers. Mana, who says the gods speak to her, says, "We met once before in the distant past, and I was promised that we shall meet once again." After hearing from Mana that she will become a shrine maiden to maintain the peaceful lives of the people, Takehiko decides to fight for Yamatai-koku and help bring peace to his country. Mana eventually rises to the rank of Great Shrine Maiden and becomes the queen of Yamatai-koku. Upon ascending the throne, she takes the name Himiko. Takehiko finds his actions inspired by thoughts of Mana, although now she practically lives in a different world from him. But then, something happens that allows Takehiko to have an audience with that girl once again…
The Takarazuka Revue presents a grand historical fantasy featuring Rio Asumi and Ayase Senna, the Flower troupe's new top star and top musume yaku combo.

"Santé!!"

"Santé!!" is the French word for "Cheers!" Wine is beloved across the globe. We hope this Takarazuka production will intoxicate you with its singular beauty and brilliance, like a good glass of wine. In fact, the elegant, sophisticated image of wine is a perfect match for the essence of the Takarazuka Revue. The concept of this performance is "the many dreams one sees upon imbibing wine" in Paris, a city packed with an abundance of dreams, love and romance. Take in a richly aromatic, mature, liberating revue where Rio Asumi will cast her charms on you.
