This work is a grand ballet reworked for the opening of the National Ballet of Japan's 2014/15 Season. The staging has been praised as "simply luxurious"; combination of the choreography by Wayne Eagling that maintains a classical style while also employing modern sensibilities, with the sophisticated, colourful costumes perfected by Toer can Schayk which echoes his former career as a dancer, and the eminently tasteful and gorgeous artistry of Kawagychi Naoji. The leading dancers appear in successive solo performances, providing a sense of the ample dance talent at the National Ballet of Japan. Come and experience the true pleasure of ballet as a comprehensive art form with this classical masterpiece loved the world over as one of Tchaikovsky's three greatest works.
