Final Fantasy X Kabuki Stage Play Will Run in Tokyo

It’s not Obon season just yet, but restless spirits will get an early Sending. A kabuki stage play of Final Fantasy X will take place in Spring 2023. You will be able to watch it from March 4, 2023 to April 12, 2023 at IHI Stage Around Tokyo. It will have 35 shows during that period. There is a teaser video for it, in which the actor for Yuna performs a Sending. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

Renowned kabuki actor Nakamura Yonekichi V will play Yuna in the kabuki show. Holographic Pyreflies appear on stage in the video as well. Unlike the soundtrack in Final Fantasy X, there is a distinctly Japanese feel to this arrangement due to the usage of traditional Japanese instruments. The music director who arranged it, as well as Nakamura Yonekichi V, previously worked on the Nausicaa kabuki stage play.

You can watch the Final Fantasy X kabuki Sending here:

The first half starts at 12 PM and the second half starts at 5:30 PM. Nakamura Karoku V, Nakamura Kinnosuke, and Onoe Ushinosuke will only appear in the second half. The most premium ticket will cost 32,000 JPY (with the cheapest being 19,800 JPY) if you want to watch both parts. The SS and S tickets will also include an exclusive acrylic stand. However, if you only want to watch either the first or second half, tickets start from 11,000 JPY. Note that if you buy tickets for only half of the show, then you cannot get the acrylic stand.

The Final Fantasy X kabuki show will be available at IHI Stage Around Tokyo from March 4 to April 2023.
