Story

"Beside the Foggy Elbe"

Two lovers-to-be come across each other on the day of the beer festival in a port town along the Elbe River. "Beside the Foggy Elbe" depicts a romance redolent of pathos and emotion between Karl, a kind and good sailor with an air of sorrow, and Lady Margit, who is running away from her high-born family because of a feud with her father. This work has been written exclusively for Takarazuka Revue by Kazuo Kikuta, one of Japan’s foremost playwrights who left many contributions to the theatrical world. Since its premiere in 1963, "Beside the Foggy Elbe" has been rerun countless times, captivating many audiences along the way.
To mark the beginning of 2019, when Takarazuka Revue celebrates its 105th anniversary, "Beside the Foggy Elbe" will be staged by the Star Troupe starring Yuzuru Kurenai, and adapted and directed by Kumiko Ueda, who fell in love with this piece of performing art. Together, Takarazuka Revue will play out a new iteration of this spectacular story—a timeless piece to be treasured over generations—illustrating the agony and heartache of life as well as the warmth of human goodness that we seldom feel today.

"ESTRELLAS -The Stars-"

"Estrellas" is Spanish for "the stars." In this revue, like a stadium of stars that shine into people’s hearts, the 'Estrellas' of the Star Troupe deliver vibrant singing and spirited, energetic dance with the theme "everyone can shine and give light like stars." Keep an eye out for this fresh and uplifting revue!
