Takarazuka Grand Theater 宝塚大劇場
A world of dreams and inspiration: home of the Takarazuka Revue
The Takarazuka Grand Theater is the home of the Takarazuka Revue, the unique, all-female musical theater troupe based in the city of Takarazuka. With a seating capacity of 2,550, performances are held throughout the year, and attract more than a million viewers. The brilliance of the performances can only be created by the Takara-jenne (the name for the performers), from pulse-pounding musicals and exciting reviews that are reminiscent of a dream.
How to Get There
The Takarazuka Grand Theater is about a 10-minute walk from Takarazuka Station on the Hankyu Railway Takarazuka Line, and Takarazuka-Minamiguchi Station on the Hankyu Railway Imazu Line.
Elements of the performances
Since it's first performance in 1914, the Takarazuka Review has continued to perform for more than 100 years, mainly with plays and shows. The troupe performs a wide variety of genres, including musicals from Broadway and around the world, works based on traditional Japanese performing arts, and stage adaptations of movies, biographies of historical figures, and literary works.
Each member of the revue is a graduate of the Takarazuka Music School, known as Takara-jenne. The Takarazuka Review consists of five troupes known as: Flower, Moon, Snow, Star, and Cosmos, as well as a group of specialists called the Senka, that excel at a singular art.
