This is a ballet that I convey e’er wanted to see, together with it was amazing! It is squeamish that at that spot is no linguistic communication barrier alongside dance.
The New National Theatre is a create new, field of the fine art edifice for the performing arts. The opera likewise uses this venue.
Rather than a playbill, they gave me this big laissez passer on notice of dissimilar brochures, definitely not every bit convenient. Not that I could read anything anyway!
I walked inwards together with was greeted yesteryear this friendly character, of course.
Many people had arrived early on for lunch. There was a champagne station for drinks,
fancy bento box sandwiches,
beautiful mousse desserts,
together with simply about cream puffs, this seemed to hold upwards the favorite. They put four on a plate together with drizzled chocolate syrup over them. Too bad I had already eaten! (Though, I don’t intend Matt would similar the prices of these confections!)
Of course, at that spot was an array of adorable stuffed animals to buy!
The venue was actually beautiful, together with I definitely had a summit advantage, at that spot were no heads blocking my view!
This was the outdoor courtyard. This venue likewise had a babysitting room where you lot could driblet off your children during the show, I idea that was brilliant! (As an interesting side note, according to my Japanese friends, the concept of getting a teenage daughter to come upwards babysit simply doesn’t exist, they NEVER create that. It is a really unusual concept, literally.)
The ballet was amazing together with moving, together with yes, I cried! By the fourth dimension they were on their 25th drape call…seriously, I idea it would hold upwards okay to sneak a quick pic. But the bright costumes did non come upwards out really well.
Waiting at Shinjuku station for my develop home. I loved my solo 24-hour interval inwards the city!
