The Tokyo Ballet presents three special performances titled "Mizuka Ueno on Stage" in February 2023, celebrating her receipt of the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's Art Encouragement Prize in March 2022.

Joined by her colleagues of The Tokyo Ballet including her recent partner, Dan Tsukamoto, and the Semperoper Ballett's Ballet Master and Principal Marcelo Gomes as a guest artist, Mizuka Ueno will perform her favorite repertoire including Boléro, pas de deux from Swan Lake, and pieces by Roland Petit who recognized her talent as a young dancer. The Tokyo Ballet will also present Paquita and Jiří Kylián's Petite Mort.

Join us for celebratory shows where Mizuka Ueno will dance with gratitude to the audiences for their warm support extended to her throughout her career.
