"Arch of Triumph"
It's the eve of World War II in Paris, where political refugees driven from their homeland gather. Ravic, a surgeon who has fled from Germany, receives help from his friend, Boris. Meanwhile, as Ravic spends his days aimlessly nursing a broken heart and seeking out his mortal enemy, he happens upon passionate love. Joan's love renews Ravic's hope and will to live, and that love is front and center as this production, with hints of a "chanson," a lyric-driven French song, portrays people struggling to survive as cruel fate upends their plans. The Snow Troupe first performed this work in 2000, when Yu Todoroki won the top prize in the theater division at the Agency for Cultural Affairs Arts Festival for her leading role in "Arch of Triumph." After a long wait, audiences can finally see this highly acclaimed masterpiece again.
The Portuguese phrase "gato bonito" means "beautiful cat." Futo Nozomi leads the inimitable members of the Snow Troupe in a dramatic Latin-style show featuring a wild array of scenes and inspired by feline creatures, who are cool and capricious by nature yet carry themselves with pure grace. Enjoy a gorgeous world of exciting fantasy you'll only find at the Takarazuka Revue.
