“One day, I saw my son, who could not leave the house, singing aloud while watching TV, and I was deeply moved. That was when the image of going on a big adventure in the world of music began to swell in my head.” I hope the children who come to the theater will experience how much fun it is to make the sounds resonate and mingle with everyone.”
When I finished doing the previous work, “New Dinosaur,” the world had changed unexpectedly due to the pandemic caused by the new coronavirus. Children were more stressed when the human nature of direct contact and interaction was restricted.
One day, I was deeply moved when I saw my son stuck at home, singing loudly while watching TV. The program connected each performer remotely and performed one song while the concert could not be held.
At the same time as the power of music struck me, the image of children going on a big adventure in the world of music with Doraemon began to swell in my head.
It would be great if the children who came to the theater could experience how much fun it is to listen to someone else’s music and make sounds by touching the instruments themselves and making the sounds resonate and mingle with everyone…! The concert’s “Nobita’s Earth Symphony” performers are each child. Please wait a little longer until the performance starts!
