"ANASTASIA"ANASTASIA THE MUSICAL
This musical is inspired by the 1997 animated film Anastasia, which was nominated for both Best Original Song and Best Original Musical or Comedy Score at the 70th Academy Awards. It is based on the “Anastasia legend,” which said that Anastasia, the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, escaped the killing of her family during the Russian Revolution. The romantic musical has been a big hit, and had a long run on Broadway from its 2017 premier to finishing up in March 2019. The production toured Spain and North America in 2018, before being performed around the world. Following its opening in Japan in spring 2020, the Takarazuka Revue version will finally see its debut. We hope you will enjoy this story of love and adventure about Dimitri, a con-man with a heart of gold, and Anya, a young woman suffering from amnesia who resembles Anastasia. Dimitri, as played by Suzuho Makaze, will perform a brand new song created especially for the Takarazuka production by the Broadway version’s creative staff!
