Ballet Asteras 2019 at NNTT
“Ballet Asteras” is a ballet gala held at the Opera Place of the New National Theatre Tokyo. It has been staged since 2009 with the aim of introducing Japanese dancers who are currently mainly performing outside of the country to a Japanese audience. Since the gala began, a total of 70 Japanese ballet dancers have participated, with almost all of them being soloists or principals in their company. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of “Ballet Asteras,” NNTT is staging two performances this year with different programs each day.
