File.2 Yokosuka Arts Theater Backstage Tour
The Yokosuka Arts Theater is a well-equipped hall with one of the few large theaters in Japan that has a full-scale opera house. On the stage, top stars from various fields, from classical music to musicals and classical performing arts, including Japan's world-class maestro Seiji Ozawa, have been spotlighted.
I heard that a `` backstage tour '' where you can tour such a longed-ahead theater to every corner, GO without hesitation!
The set is a carry-in entrance near the parking lot entrance. When I opened the heavy door, I found a huge space that could accommodate a whole large trailer. That there was such a place where you do not usually notice ...
Immediately beneath the floor of the stage of the Great Theater, the so-called "Naku" is approaching. The main stage, which carries stage equipment and equipment to the stage, can be loaded up to about 25 tons.
There are many dangerous places to get behind the scenes, so everyone listens carefully to the notes during the tour.
And finally, take the large elevator that can load up to 4 tons and go upstairs!

Out of nowhere, I heard the sound of the orchestra tuning and the noise of the audience…
When the curtain opens with magnificent music, you can overlook the 1806 seats up to the balcony on the upper floor!
An exciting moment worthy of the opening of the backstage tour!
After taking a commemorative photo with all the participants, they will be divided into two groups and each will experience the stage mechanism.
The team that remained on the stage first experienced the operation of the art baton.
Far above the stage, there are 50 "art batons" hanging devices and curtains. Experience the operation of raising and lowering this baton on the console. Somehow pounding.
A dazzling spotlight on the dimly lit stage ...!
According to the explanation, the team members who went upstairs earlier are operating the spotlight.

It doesn't matter who is shining. Being in the spotlight on an opera house stage is a unique opportunity. Overcome the glare and embarrassment and enjoy Primadonna's mood.
I am a star!
After taking the elevator up to the 7th floor, we came to a space called "gallery" above the stage. Literally behind the scenes, where lighting equipment and stage equipment are suspended. Looking down on the stage, the height is dazzling and exciting again.
Next, go to the pin spot room through the backstage like a maze.
Now it's time for us to follow the other team members in the spotlight. Let each one teach you how to operate, let's try!
Next, we all sat in the audience and observed a demonstration of the stage mechanism.
On stage are colorful dances of light and tools such as art batons, curtains, and pianos. They just shimmer and dance to the music And dramatic!
It is said that despite creating such a variety of scenes, only a small part is used when viewed from the overall stage structure of a large theater. How much potential do you have? Awesome! Yokosuka Arts Theater!
The wonderful demonstrations worthy of being called "showtime" were accompanied by the skilled skills of the staff supporting the stage and their deep love for the stage.
"I want to come to a concert this summer," and "I want to watch the stage of traditional performing arts."
One of my personal interests was visiting the dressing room.
There are large rooms that can be used by more than 10 people, medium-sized private rooms used by leading actors together with managers, and small private rooms that Maestro prefers to focus on. As expected, there is only an opera house-style theater and there are various dressing rooms.
I wonder if Seiji Ozawa was sitting on this sofa, too.

And finally to the orchestra pit in front of the stage. A space for orchestras to create dreamy music when performing operas and ballets.
The world's maestro was standing on this podium and receiving cheers from the audience ... again, delusional.
When I closed my eyes, I felt that the tuning of the orchestra and the noise of the audience seated at the beginning of the tour were faintly heard.
