A powerful and seductive "magical evening" presented to you by John Caird. Enter the world of this dreamy romantic comedy for one evening of theatrical celebrations.
This play was incredibly popular when performed in May and June of 2007, and it is making a return in early summer 2009. In 2007, NNTT invited John Caird, Honorary Associate Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, to direct the play with flair and power choosing the best Japanese cast for a wide-ranging audience. Caird's careful characterization, collaboration with a live band, merry dancing, sumptuous set design, and creative costumes were all combined together to make this production highly praised. This re-presentation will feature the same cast as the premiere performance. The cast was rigorously selected in auditions by John Caird himself, stage design by Sue Blaine is radically creative and imaginative as acclaimed at the RSC, Ilona Sekacz colorfully rearranges Mendelssohn's music, and together with the Japanese staff, this will be a powerful rendition of a timeless classic.
