BALLET ASTERAS 2017
~ Inviting Japanese Dancers from Overseas ~
Nowadays Japanese dancers are very active not only in Japan but all over the world. Ballet Asteras, Ballet Gala held at Opera House of New National Theatre Tokyo, has been annually staged since 2009, except the year of 2011 when the Great East Japan Earthquake happened, with the aim to introduce Japanese dancers who are mainly performing outside of Japan and who have few chance to present themselves to Japanese audience. The total number of Japanese participants at this Ballet Gala since 2009 to 2016 has become fifty. Almost all of them are soloists and principals in their company.
This time we are inviting 13 dancers (6 couples and 1 solo dancer) from all over the world along with the students of Vaganova Ballet Academy.
Dancers from the National Ballet of Japan and students of NNT Ballet School are also taking part.

Don't miss this special occassion as there is only one chance to witness this event on the 22nd July 2017 15:00.
