Live Performances


Has the Takarazuka ever performed in your country before?

So I'm kind of making it my mini mission to contact Hankyu Hanshin (the megacorp that owns Takarazuka) and drop them a message to tell them to bring Takarazuka to Singapore as a one-off performance.(or at least think about it)

The last time Takarazuka came to Singapore was in 1982 which was a very VERY long time ago, according to this Singapore Archives image

Singapore is much better at accepting 'controversial' art performances these days compared to the 80s plus I think we're getting on quite well with Japan. We celebrated 50 years of friendly relations with Japan last year and I think Japan is wanting to do more business or attract more tourists from Singapore to come over because, really, Singaporeans LOVE Japan. So I do hope that they'd consider having a performance or two here.

I know the Takrazuka veterans did a one-off performance at the Lincoln Center in US last year. You lucky people! I would have gone to see it

There's a list of all the foreign tours here on the TakaWiki:

It's pretty interesting how long they have been doing them. I wonder if they were more or less expensive when they traveled by steam ship? I imagine it was easier to move sets and equipment....
