Running time is approx. 2 hours 30 mins including interval



Japanese dancers are very active not only in Japan but all over the world. Ballet Asteras, Ballet Gala held at the 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 chances to present themselves to the Japanese audience.

The total number of Japanese participants at this Ballet Gala since 2009 to 2017 has become sixty. Almost all of them are soloists or principals in their company.

Don't miss this special occassion as there is only one chance on the 28th July 2018 15:00.
