News Nodame Cantabile Holds Live Japanese Concert in June
posted on 2007-04-27 08:58 EDT
Tokyo's Bunkamura Orchard Hall will host The Nodame Matsuri (Festival) '07 Concert, this year's special performance of classical selections heard in the Nodame Cantabile romantic comedy anime. As in both the animated series and the live-action adaptation of the 19-million-selling original manga, the music in the June 13 event will center around the piano. The planned musical selections include Beethoven's entire Symphony No. 7.
The event will also premiere the "complete" version of the theatrical movie Prigorota: The Friends' Great Space Adventure. Prigorota is the supposedly world-famous children's anime that the Nodame Cantabile characters "saw" within their own fictional world. A spoof trailer for the movie is already available on the Nodame Canatabile anime website.
The concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. on June 13. Ticket PIA will accept ticket reservations between April 27 and May 15, and begin selling assigned-seating tickets on May 19 for 5,250 yen (about US$44). Ticket PIA is also promoting a series of performances during Golden Week (May 2 to May 6) which will include La Folle Journée selection from Nodame Cantabile's soundtrack.
