On Sunday afternoon the final curtain came down on performances of Swan Lake here in Tokyo.

Capacity audiences were ecstatic with the world-class performances given by the company over three days here at the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, as displayed by the masses of ballet fans waiting at stage door following curtain down waiting for autographs and photos.

As the dry ice faded and the towering gothic set was dismantled, the magical starry skies of Cinderella were being erected leading us to opening night tonight!

Final rehearsals are taking place on stage as we speak and last minute preparations are being put in place by the costume, wigs and shoes departments.

Take a look at some of the final touches in the gallery below…
