In this production, Mr Kumakawa gathered and used various music pieces newly.

I looked forward to seeing the ballet of Tetsuya Kumakawa and Miyako Yoshida. I think Miyako's face expression was more gorgeous than others.

Mr Kumakawa's jumps are so much high!! He jumped over 3 dancers who sat a sofa!!! It was very amazing!! Also, his turn was so much fast!! It really was breathtaking!!

Ms Rie Matsuoka and the orchestra were also nice.

However, Mr Kumakawa had injured after a jump in this "Corsair" tour..... He had recovered once, but injured after a jump in "Corsair" again, and recovered again now....
