    • Aratani Theatre at Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (Los Angeles, CA)


    Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19, 2015

    Aratani Theatre

    244 S. San Pedro Street
    Los Angeles, CA 90012

    “Peace On Your Wings” is an original musical inspired by the life of Sadako Sasaki, a 12-year old girl who died from leukemia resulting from radiation caused by the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. She was made famous for having folded over a thousand paper cranes to fulfill an old Japanese legend that would grant one wish to anyone who would fold one thousand cranes. To this day she is a reminder of innocent victims of war, and her story of her thousand paper cranes have inspired a movement of folding cranes for peace. The musical juxtaposes Sadako’s true story and the events leading up to her death in November 1955 with a fictional story about a group of her friends who rallied support from around Japan to have a monument built in Sadako’s memory to honor the children victims of the atomic bomb.

    The fictional elements of the musical provide an opportunity to weave in issues that affect children in middle school today. In creating a piece of theater that shares an important historical element, and keeping it relatable to current young audiences, “Peace On Your Wings” is able to effectively impart Sadako’s message, and the important contributions of a group of young students who were able to make a difference. It is because of Sadako’s young friends that people around the world know Sadako, and why the origami crane has become an internationally recognized symbol of peace.

    Tickets start at $15.

    Ikuyo Nakamichi won the first prize and the Masuzawa Prize at the 51st Annual Japan Music Competition in her freshman year at Toho Gakuen School of Music. After taking numerous prizes in Japan and abroad, she began performing actively in Europe and Japan in 1987.

    She has performed as a soloist with many of the finest symphonies world-wide, including the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Jukka-Pekka Saraste; the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, both under Lorin Maazel; and the Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin under Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos— earning high critical acclaim. Nakamichi has given many recitals in Japan. Her series “Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas,” in particular, together with the companion recording, have earned Nakamichi high praise for her earnest attitude towards the works performed and for her superior musicality, firmly establishing her reputation as a fine interpreter of “Beethoven”. Her Mozart interpretations are noted as definitive by both critics and fans alike.

    Angela Aki is a versatile musician/singer-songwriter with a stellar recording and performance career in Japan, which includes #1 hit albums on the Oricon charts and one that reached double platinum sales. She has performed on television, in videos and commercials, as well as in concert throughout Japan, including at the renowned Tokyo Budokan every year during her career. Angela was selected to write lyrics and record the theme song, both in English and in Japanese, for the video game Final Fantasy XII. She has worked in collaboration with songwriters Ben Folds and Janis Ian, as well as with Japanese artists. In 2009, she composed a piece called “Tegami” (Letter To My 15-year old Self) for the All-Japan School Chorus Competition. When released as a single, it remained on the Oricon charts continuously for 80 weeks. The “Tegami” lyrics have also been incorporated into Social Studies textbooks throughout Japan to encourage discussion of emotional issues that could lead to bullying, depression or teen suicide. In 2014, Angela moved to California to further her study of music theory, composition and orchestration for film and stage productions and is currently working on the development of a Broadway musical.
