  • Theater / Dance

A visionary, passionate festive musical experience

This festive musical is a dynamic and stylized reinterpretation of an old story about love. Since its premiere in 2011, the production was previously revived in 2014 and now comes to F/T15 as the opening play of the festival. Shakespeare’s timeless original comedy has been delightfully embellished by Hideki Noda, adding whole new elements, such as the appearance of Mephistopheles, the evil demon from the legend of Faust. Noda’s exuberant, poetic language is perfectly paired with Satoshi Miyagi’s inventive staging, featuring a cast who also plays musical instruments in this large-scale production by Shizuoka Performing Arts Center (SPAC).
