About us - Noriko Kobayashi Ballet Theatre

Noriko Kobayashi Ballet Theatre was founded as a classical ballet company in Tokyo Mejiro by its founder Koh Kobayashi in 1973.
The company has produced many outstanding ballet dancers who dance both in Japan and internationally including the prima ballerina, Noriko Kobayashi who represents Japan.
The company has been dedicated to the introduction of classical works and other ballets which have rarely been seen in Japan. Since “Ondine", choreographed by Alfred Rodrigues, was first staged with its leading role danced by Noriko Kobayashi in March 1974, the company has invited elite artists such as Chieko Hattori, Hiroshi Shimada, John Field, Pamela May, and Julie Lincoln as well as Alfred Rodrigues, and has been constantly involved in developing artistic activities. The recent repertoire for the company has been receiving high acclaim, particularly those pieces choreographed predominantly by internationally renowned British choreographers, for example Ninette de Valois, Frederick Ashton and Kenneth MacMillan. In 2007, the company staged “Concert" and “Elite Syncopations" choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan and “The Rake's Progress" choreographed by Ninette de Valois, which was given enthusiastic reviews by the British newspaper “Financial Times". And in 2008, when the company performed awarded “The National Arts Festival Grand Prize for The Division of Dance 2008" presided over by the National Agency for Cultural Affairs. Over these several years, Noriko Kobayashi as Artistic Director has emphasized the importance of bringing well-known ballets into the company’s repertoire such as Frederick Ashton’s “Sc?nes de ballet”, “Les Patineur”, “Les Rendezvous”, “Two Pigeons”, Derek Deane’s “Giselle”, Johan Kobborg’s La “Sylphide”, MacMillan’s “The Invitation”, “Winter Dreams”, “Gloria”, “La Fin du Jour”, “The Rite of Spring”, “The Sleeping Beauty” and “Manon”. In 2012, the two programs celebrated the company’s 40th Anniversary year. The first is the Japanese premier performance of MacMillan’s full-length ballet “Anastasia”. The second is also premier of Noriko Kobayashi’s new production of “The Nutcracker”. The company was awarded the Dance Critics Society of Japan Award 2012 for this distinguished achievement. The company continues to perform widely and actively throughout Japan and has already made more than one hundred seasons in Tokyo so far.
Noriko Kobayashi who serves as the artistic director of the present company assumed its position in 1983.
