After 10 sold-out West End performances of Death Note the Musical in Concert, its producers are to stage the European premiere of one of the most popular romantic stories and greatest tearjerkers in manga history, Your Lie in April – The Musical in Concert.
This musical adaption of a manga-favourite story, Your Lie in April, also made into the beloved anime by A-1 Pictures, brings to life the poignant story of Kōsei Arima, a young piano prodigy, and his inability to play following his mother’s death. He strikes a friendship with violinist Kaori Miyazono and she slowly encourages him to perform again. This adaption is based on Your Lie in April, a five-million-selling manga by Naoshi Arakawa published by KODANSHA LTD. ©Naoshi Arakawa/KODANSHA.
