About

The Floating Kingdom. Japan, 1853. The arrival of Commodore Perry's fleet launches this spectacular musical, a visually stunning masterpiece that mingles elements of traditional Japanese theatre with the dazzle of Broadway at its most inventive. With haunting songs and astonishing theatricality, one of the theatre's greatest composers chronicles the Westernization of an island undisturbed for centuries. "An exquisite, enchanting and remarkable work of theatre." -New York Post

This highly-praised production, performed in Japanese with English subtitles, by the New National Theatre of Japan, directed by renowned Japanese director Amon Miyamoto.
