吉田都さんのトーク・イヴェント@ロンドン

2017.01.14
昨晩、1月13日、大和日英基金が主催した吉田都さんのトーク・イヴェントへ。友人が教えてくれなかったら見損なっていた。

Ballerina: The Reason I Keep Dancing
http://www.dajf.org.uk/event/ballerina-the-reason-i-keep-dancing

Japan has and continues to produce world class ballet dancers. Dancing at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden is the pinnacle of a dancer’s career, and young Japanese ballet dancers dream of joining the world-famous Royal Ballet company. Such is the success of Japanese ballet that Ryoichi Hirano and Akane Takada are currently principal dancers in the Royal Ballet. Miyako Yoshida, who has performed in numerous leading roles at the Royal Ballet, is probably the most famous Japanese ballerina in Britain. After retiring from the company, she is now teaching young talented dancers in Japan the art of ballet. In this talk, we invite her to tell us about her ballet experiences and to share her love of dancing with us.

Born and trained in Tokyo, Yoshida joined The Royal Ballet School in 1983 after winning the Prix de Lausanne. In 1984, she joined Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet, (now known as the Birmingham Royal Ballet), where she was promoted to principal dancer in 1988. In 1995, Yoshida joined the Royal Ballet as principal dancer. Spending most of her career in Britain, Yoshida captured the hearts of the British people, subsequently being awarded the prize of Best Female Dancer in the 2006 National Dance Awards. Known for her expressiveness, precision and feather-light yet powerful movement, Yoshida is beloved by many and has established a huge fan base both in Britain and all over the world. With more than two decades spent in dance, Yoshida took her final bow in Covent Garden with an emotional performance of Cinderella, reserving Romeo and Juliet for her final curtain call in her native Tokyo. In 2010 she left the Royal Ballet and is now a freelance dancer. She records her experiences as a ballerina in her recently published book, Ballerina: The Reason I Keep Dancing, 「バレリーナ・踊り続ける理由」.


 イヴェント終了後、吉田さんの新著のサイン会があった。もし吉田さんが覚えている、もしくは何らかの印象を持っているのであれば2004年に出演した、ケネス・マクミランの「アナスタシア」でのクシェシンスカを踊った時の印象を尋ねてみた。

 もちろん、その舞台をピンポイントで鮮明には覚えてはおられなかったが、印象に残る役だったとのこと。トークの中で、ロンドンで踊ることはないだろうとのこと。でも、今でもこんなに人気があるのだから、サドラーズで1週間くらい座長公演しても完売になると思う。

吉田都さんのフェアウェル、でもとても幸せな夜
