The Tokyo Ballet's repertoire includes several ballets created for the Company by the world-renowned choreographers such as Maurice Béjart, John Neumeier and Jiří Kylián, which have drawn wide attention from all over the world. This fall, the Company will have a new creation by a long-awaited Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara as one of the projects to celebrate the Company's 55th anniversary.

Saburo Teshigawara's performances and works have won critical acclaim in Japan and beyond, and he has been invited to perform at major theaters and festivals all over the world. He has also been commissioned to create new works by several world leading ballet companies. For the Paris Opera Ballet, he choreographed three times, and every time his work caused an international sensation. For the creation for The Tokyo Ballet, he has chosen music by the world-renowned Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu. The fusion among the Japanese talents is expected to create a globally appreciated dance.

The other features of the triple bill are George Balanchine's Serenade set to Tchaikovsky's music which opened up a new era in ballet in the United States, and Maurice Béjart's masterpiece Le Sacre du printemps set to revolutionary music of Stravinsky. The triple bill will be an exciting showcase for The Tokyo Ballet.
