Kodo in Ballet Performance “Kaguyahime”
February: Opéra National de Paris Palais Garnier, Paris, France

In February 2013, eight Kodo members will make a guest appearance in ballet performances of “Kaguyahime” held by France’s leading opera and ballet ensemble, Opéra national de Paris. Kodo will make history as the first taiko ensemble to perform at the world’s highest-ranked theater and home of the Paris Opera, the celebrated Palais Garnier. “Kaguyahime” is a legendary ballet production that fuses music by composer Maki Ishii with choreography by Jiří Kylián. Since it was first performed in 1988, this popular production has been performed in various countries around the world. The last performances in Paris were held three years ago when Kodo took part in “Kaguyahime” with the Paris Opera Ballet at Opéra Bastille from June to July in 2010.  Link
