Post Pacific Overtures: Japanese Language Production?
Apparently it was directed by Amon Hiyamoto (the director who did the 2004 revival), and played at the Lincoln Centre in 2000.

Does anyone have any information on this production? Who was in the cast? Did the production originate in Japan? Are there photos, maybe video clips? Knowing the Lincoln Center, they probably have a full tape somewhere... And won't sell it... :evil:

I'm also interested it, I even read someone claimed it aired in Japanese but I haven't heard anything of this and I wonder if they are confusing it with the English OBC airing.

This production though, is what became the 2004 revival.

So the 2004 production did closely emulate it. I was under the impression that while they had the same director, they were rather different stylistically.
