Applaud jewel-like ballerinas at the memorable Kanagawa Prefectural Hall!
- event date:End of event
I went to "Jewels from MIZUKA Ⅱ" held at Kanagawa Kenmin Hall.
This place is a memorable hall for me. Our debut concert in Japan was held in a small hall here, so every time I come here, I am filled with refreshing and nostalgic memories.
It was a fine autumn day, and the trees in front of the hall seemed to speak beautifully.
Well, I originally wanted to be a ballerina, so I love ballet. It was my first time to see Mizuka Ueno on stage, but she is charming and has a great style. All the other dancers are great too! Jewel ballerinas. It reminded me of Balanchine's "jewels" that I saw at the London Opera House two years ago.
On this day, Gershwin played on the piano was mainly used. As a pianist, I think, "It would have been better if it was live music." But I was able to hear my favorite song, "love walked in", and I was fascinated by Gershwin's stylish and modern staging.
The most impressive pieces were Carmen's Adagio and Ravel's Bolero (choreographed by Laurent Petit). In Bolero, the two dancers were like creatures from the future, their movements overlapped and separated, and I was overwhelmed by the movements of their arms and legs.
Various concerts are always held at Kanagawa Prefectural Hall. By all means, please try to experience music and the stage in this hall. Before or after the concert, how about taking a walk in Yamashita Park and feeling the breeze of Yokohama? After watching the ballet, I also had tea with a friend at a nearby stylish cafe. The handmade earl gray chiffon cake was delicious!
After dusk, I went home while watching the illumination. It warms my heart and makes me want to go back for Christmas!
