Finnish National Ballet – Moomin Ballet & Gala
A new presentation by the acclaimed Finnish National Ballet makes it way to Japan for a handful of special dates at Bunkamura Orchard Hall. The show will be divided into two parts with the second part comprising of a gala performance of “Scandinavian Ballet Color” including spectacular highlights of the contemporary scene. But let’s be honest, the main draw is the promise of Moomin characters performing ballet! Perhaps Finland’s most beloved export, Tove Jansson’s characters will somehow fit their fluffy feet into slippers and spring to life in a fun-filled magical dance interpretation of “Moomin and the Magician’s Hat.” A fantastic treat full of charm for both ballet fans and Moomin maniacs alike. Performance times vary each day, so check the website for full details.
