The staff of the La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky stage play unveiled images of the full main cast in costume last week. Lobby Studio also began streaming a promotional video on Thursday with the three main cast members in costume.

Shōta Takasaki as Haruto Mizushima

YOSHIKI Tani as Yukihiro Yagisawa

Yūshi Nakamura as Shiro Hozumi

Ryō Kobayashi as Arata Mizushima

Masato Saki as Chiaki Tōgane

Sōichirō Sorihashi will play Shion Enami. Kenta Sugibayashi, Shōji Nakada, Kenshin Ikeda, Yuki Yoshida, and Ryō Yamada will also have roles.

The cast members revealed in costume in July are:

Risako Ito as Kanade Kohinata

Takehisa Maeyama as Kyoya Kisaragi

Mario Kuroba as Ritsu Kisaragi

Kōtarō Yoshitani (Sengoku Musou, Amnesia, Bakumatsu Rock stage plays, Alice in the Country of Hearts musical) is directing the play and writing its script. The play will run in Tokyo's Zenrōsai Hall Space Zero theater from September 4 to 13.

The official website of the La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky TV anime also announced in May that the anime event "Kin-iro no Corda Blue♪Sky Zenkoku Gakusei Ongaku Concours" (tentative title; La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky National Student Music Contest) will be held at Tokyo's Toyosu PIT venue on October 25. Jun Fukuyama, Yuya Uchida, Kaori Mizuhashi, and other members of the anime's cast will attend the event.

The La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky anime adapts KOEI Tecmo Games' Kin-iro no Corda 3 (La Corda D'Oro 3) dating simulation game. The game's story follows a girl named Kanade and her relationships with the orchestra members and other boys at her school. The anime series premiered in Japan in 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

The game franchise already inspired a television anime series in 2006, and a television special sequel, La Corda D'Oro ~secondo passo~, aired in spring of 2009. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released the series on DVD in North America, and Crunchyroll streamed both anime. Kure also adapted the first Kin-iro no Corda game into a manga, and Viz Media published the 17th and final volume of the original La Corda d'Oro manga in North America in 2013.

KOEI Tecmo Games announced in July that it is developing the La Corda d'Oro 4 PS Vita game for a 2016 release.
