Story

"fff –fortississimo–"

Ludwig van Beethoven instigated a musical revolution of such historical proportions that we still know his name today. And yet the man bearing that name was visited by misfortune of all kinds: lost love, loneliness, hearing loss... Even so, he was able to produce his "Symphony No. 9" featuring the singing of "Ode to Joy." But how?
The musical genius despairing over his fading hearing met a mysterious woman. Although agitated by her enigmatic presence, for Beethoven she at some point became a friend on his journey through life. Their unusual relationship would eventually produce a piece of music.
In the chaos of Europe following the French Revolution, Napoleon, Goethe, and Beethoven each dominated his domain: war, literature, music. This musical symphonia is a new telling of the story of legendary men who are known by all.

"Silk Road: A Bandit and a Jewel"

From west to east, from east to west, the Silk Road, a trade route carrying culture, civilization, and people, connected Western Europe with Asia over land and sea.
A bandit preying on merchants traveling the route obtains a blue diamond. However, it is in fact the lost eye of the Indian goddess Sita. The jewel has changed hands on countless occasions, at times bringing good fortune to its owner, at other times tragic doom. Having roamed the Silk Road since the long distant past, the Eye of Sita invites the bandit on a journey through the copious memories dwelling behind its dazzling facets.
From the past to the future, and from the future to the past, this thoroughly exotic Revue Arabesque spins a tale of a journey through space and time.
This production is also the debut Show for director Hirokazu Ikuta.
The music is composed by Yoko Kanno, who has worked on music for numerous commercials, anime works, and films, and has also written music for a variety of artists. Audiences will be treated to a harmony delivered by the combination of her creative world of music plus Futo Nozomi and the Snow troupe!
