Takarazuka Music School welcomes 40 new students

HYOGOApril 22nd (News about Japan) – Takarazuka Music School, the actor training institute of the Takarazuka Revue Company located in Takarazuka City, Hyogo Prefecture, celebrated the entrance ceremony for the 112th class on April 19.

With an acceptance rate of twelve to one, forty new students have embarked on a two-year journey, training in vocal music and dance, aimed at the prestigious stages of the Takarazuka Revue.

The Takarazuka Revue is under scrutiny following the sudden death of a female actor last September. The family claimed the death was a suicide caused by harassment by senior members of the group, leading to a settlement in March this year. The parent company, Hankyu Hanshin Holdings, acknowledged the harassment and agreed to compensate the family.

The competitive ratio for this year’s class was the lowest since 2000, perhaps reflecting the challenges the institution faces in the wake of the controversy.
