This year’s Christmas Eve will be decided by the ballet of “Dragon Quest”! A popular work based on Dragon Quest will be held in Matsumoto for the first time

A performance of the popular ballet “Dragon Quest” based on the nationally popular game “Dragon Quest” will be held at Matsumoto Performing Arts Center on December 24th.
The Star Dancers Ballet Company will perform the ballet “Dragon Quest” on December 24th at the Matsumoto Performing Arts Center.
Since its birth in 1995, the ballet “Dragon Quest” is a popular work that has been repeatedly performed both in Japan and overseas. It has fascinated a wide range of audiences, not just ballet fans. The original story that unfolds with the melody composed by Koichi Sugiyama is a moving finale. Along with the powerful stage equipment and gorgeous costumes, we will present you with a live orchestral performance. In addition, dancers from Nagano Prefecture, Saya Kaneko and Maho Azuma will appear in this performance.
In 2019, this work attracted a lot of attention when it first appeared at the world’s largest Japanese culture festival “Japan Expo” held in Paris. Please look forward to the moving stage created by the miraculous fusion of ballet and games.
