"A Fairy Tale -The Spirit of the Blue Rose-"
A blue rose, a forbidden flower that does not exist in this world.
The Spirit of the Blue Rose is sealed away in dark solitude, in a crime against the laws of nature. As time passes, something resides in his heart…
In the mid-19th century, the British Empire was enjoying unparalleled prosperity thanks to economic development fueled by the Industrial Revolution. Following the resounding success of the first-ever World Expo, London is fanning the flames of consumer desire through the fruits of scientific progress and the city has sparked an enormous boom in rare plants from foreign lands.
On one very foggy night, in the withered garden of the Wingfield residence, Harvey the botanist meets a man who goes by the moniker "The Spirit of the Blue Rose," who recounts a tale about a girl named Charlotte who once called the property home. But did these events actually happen?
This original musical, a bittersweet yet heart-warming narrative for an adult audience, portrays how people complicate the real world they believe in with a fanciful world they cannot see. Audiences are invited to a gorgeous, fantastical universe by Rio Asumi, who brings divine beauty to "The Spirit of the Blue Rose."
The French word "charme" can express ideas such as "attractiveness," "loveliness," "magic" and "bewitchment." Lurking amid the flowers and lights of the city of Paris is a revue that unfolds on a stage below the city streets that is at once both provocative and captivating. The Flower Troupe, a unique group led by Rio Asumi and her ability to amaze and mesmerize audiences with the variegated forms she takes on with each performance, hits the stage to present sophisticated brilliance, sensual beauty, along with hope of finding the light in the darkness.
