9/10 The Night of Li Xiang Lan(李香蘭Night)

A ephemeral, glamorous song bloomed in an era of chaos.

A singer Li Xiang Lan(李香蘭/山口淑子) made her movie debut in 1938 in Far East Asia, where was extremely confused by the invasion of Japan and the establishment of a puppet government.In this performance, we have focused on her as a international singer, and have created a program centered on her repertoire.
We have chosen the Ginza Classic Hall as the venue, located on the 6th floor of the Ginza Lion Building, which was built in 1934, four years before Li Xiang Lan's debut.
Please enjoy the many masterpieces which played by new arrangements at the venue where you can see the atmosphere of those days.

This performance was adopted by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, to "Arts for the future 2", a project to support the revival of cultural and artistic activities from the pandemic of COVID 19.
