TELL Ballet for Children- Urashima Taro

“On Sunday afternoon, March 6, 2011, Tokyo English Life Line (TELL) will hold the 7th Annual TELL Ballet for Children- Urashima Taro– performed by the wonderful Austrian Ballet Company – Tokyo at the newly re-opened and renovated Tokyo American Club. Now in its seventy year, the TELL Ballet for Children will attract 300-400 foreign and Japanese guests.” For tickets click here!

Urashima Taro reminds me of Pandora’s Box. Don’t open it, you never know what you will find out! I’m sure your family will love this performance of a folk tale that dates back to 478 A.D.  According to Wikipedia, “this story is one of the first documented stories about time travel.”  Young Taro is a hero who saves a princess, but then he misses his family and longs for the life he once led.  Armed with a special box, tamatebako, Taro heads back to his homeland only to find that he has traveled to a new place. I don’t want to give too many details. Just go and check it out!
