>>50 years after Yukio Mishima's death.
Overwhelming image of the masters!

This year, 50 years after his death. Yukio Mishima is a literary artist who is still internationally regarded for his unique vivid aesthetics and ideas. In 1993, the master choreographer Maurice Bejal chose Mishima to create a ballet on the theme of "Japan" for the Tokyo Ballet.

And as Bejer said, "I created this to love poets," this work was a bold attempt to make his whole life, literature, thought, and aesthetics into a ballet, rather than to tell the story of Mishima's life and writings.

The beginning is the "sea" that often appears in Mishima's works. The boy Mishima appears from the scene of the tide noise, and begins the journey as if to reiord the history of his own soul. It is revealed that the boy is divided into four people, and the fourth is a dead man. "Kagamiko's Room", "Forbidden Color", "Kannerkan", "Afternoon Towing", "Kinkakuji"... Mishima's many masterpieces and his aesthetic motif, "St. Sebastian"...... A gleaning image unfolds on the stage, and before long, a climax filled with tension from "melancholy" to self-decision, and a return to the "sea" will come.
Masterpieces performed at the Tokyo Ballet's overseas performances, including the Paris Opera, the Milan Scala Theatre, the Berlin Deutsche Opera and the Hamburg Opera, have been recasted for the first time in 10 years to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the writer's death. Please look forward to it!
