If you’re planning to visit Shibuya in August, you might want to get your theater on. A stage production of the Kaito+Miku song “Cantarella” (seen above) will be playing at Space Zero from August 3 to 7. There is some pedigree behind this, though. Both show director Yukio Ueshima and leads Kentarō Kanesaki and Daisuke Watanabe all worked on Tenimyu, a musical based on The Prince of Tennis. Of course, if you can’t make it this fashionable area of Tokyo, you can just watch the Nico Nico Douga stream.
With “Cantarella” being just another example of Vocaloid music crossing through the performing arts, you have to wonder what’s going to be next. I, for one, would love to see a stage production based on “Hello, Planet” What would you guys like to see?
