Story

"MUGEN-MUSOU:Adapted from the novel "Miyamoto Musashi" by Eiji Yoshikawa"

"MUGEN-MUSOU," based on the best-selling novel by Eiji Yoshikawa about the patriarch of the "two heavens as one" technique of fighting with a sword in each hand, is a dramatic portrayal of the life of Miyamoto Musashi, the master swordsman who was unrivaled by any other under heaven, and the love between him and Otsu, the woman who always yearned for him.
Our story begins around the beginning of the Tokugawa clan's dominion over Japan, following their decisive victory at the Battle of Sekigahara in the year 1600. Shinmen Takezo, a countryside samurai from Miyamoto, a village in the Sakushu region of western Japan, was an uncommonly brave warrior who utterly dominated his enemies and struck them down with such destructive force. However, after learning the teachings of the traveling monk Takuan, he decided to repent for his shallow ways and changed his name to Miyamoto Musashi. He then embarked upon a journey of spiritual and physical improvement to master the way of the sword. During his utterly grueling training in swordsmanship, Musashi met many people and through his trials and tribulations he grew into a greater man. Meanwhile, Musashi still holds a place in his heart for Otsu, his childhood sweetheart. The feeling is mutual, and during this time they almost, though not quite, cross paths again on several occasions. It is also around this time that another talented swordsman is making his name known far and wide among the common people. He is Sasaki Kojiro. The fates of these two warriors is deeply intertwined, leading eventually to their fateful showdown...
This performance marks the Takarazuka Grand Theater debut for new top pair Ryo Tamaki and Sakura Misono.

"Krung Thep, The City of Angels"

Thailand is a country cloaked in an air of the mystic Orient. Its capital city, Bangkok, is known by the Thai people as Krung Thep, meaning "The City of Angels." On a stage representing a southern paradise envelope surrounded by azure seas and colorful flowers, Ryo Tamaki leads the presentation of an exotic revue that brings out the allure of the Moon Troupe in new ways.
