Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!


Nova Bossa Nova


This is a famous revue which has been performed eight times by Takarazuka Revue, beginning in 1971. It incorporates well-known Spanish songs with new Japanese ones to tell the story of Sol, Estrela, Ouro, and Brisa. The only spoken dialogue in the revue is the priest and the nun, plus one line each by Sol and Estrella. The rest is told through song, or acted out.

Rio de Janeiro in South America. Once every year a carnival takes place for three days and three nights. Everyone is excitedly preparing for the big event.

The revue opens with a scene introducing the main characters. They sing happily about the sea and the sky. Later, Sol and Ouro each rob a bank with their young helpers. They meet and Ouro is instantly jealous of Sol. He tries to best him in coolness, but Sol throws money to the crowd and departs with their shrieking loyalty. Later, Sol dons a ragged disguise to hide from the police. He manages to misdirect them and disappears.

That night, everyone goes to the tango club. Ouro is sleezing up to Estrella, desperate to get his paws on her diamond necklace. He steals it without her noticing, then Sol tricks him into giving it up, and then Ouro’s follower pulls a gun and takes it back. Sol takes a nasty knock over the head.

Mar and Brisa are happily walking along in the night singing of their love. Bolo, Sol’s helper, comes to beg Mar’s help to get the dizzy thief home. While she’s waiting for Mar to return, Brisa hears sirens. Ouro comes running by, the police in pursuit. He sees an opportunity and grabs her, kissing her passionately to throw the police off. Dazed, Brisa lets Ouro lead her away.

The next day Brisa and Ouro, and Sol and Estrela and dancing on the beach. Everyone is happy and celebrating carnival. Suddenly, Mar appears. He is looking frantically through the crowds for Brisa. He finds her dancing passionately with Ouro and is enraged. The two men fight, trying to posses Brisa. Ouro thinks he has won, and then Mar pulls his knife and lunges. Brisa is caught between them.

Mar is devastated, as is Ouro. Both men sing in sorrow and distress. Eventually, Ouro is comforted by Labios. Mar is arrested, but Sol sends Bolo to bribe the guards and free him. Mar is happy to have a new chance at life. Everyone dances for the joy of life.

Later that night, while Bolso, Ouro’s follower, is getting ready for carnival, the diamond necklace is stolen. It eventually ends up in the hands of Madam X, a woman in a female-only nightclub. Both Sol and Ouro don female disguises to go in in pursuit of the necklace. Eventually it is Sol who emerges triumphantly, and he returns the necklace to Estrela.

The next morning Estrela must leave Rio de Janiero. She and Sol say their goodbyes, and Sol is sad to watch her go. As she leaves, she drops her necklace. After an internal battle, the thief returns it to her mother. Not seconds after she goes off stage, however, we hear a cry and Bolso runs past with the necklace once more. Sol trips him, and the necklace flies through the air to land at the feet of Lua and Mama. Mama adds it to her collection box. Sol laughs and goes to join the last of the carnival.
