Liz and the Blue Bird (Dubbed in English)
Opens Nov 10, 2018
NOVEMBER 10-15 ONLY!
Yoroizuka plays the oboe, and Nozomi Kasaki plays the flute in Kita Uji
High School concert band. As seniors, this will be their last
competition together, and the selected piece "Liz and the Blue Bird"
features a duet for the oboe and flute. "This piece reminds me of us."
Nozomi says cheerfully, enjoying the solo, while Mizore's usual
happiness to play with Nozomi is tinged with the dread of their
inevitable parting. By all accounts the girls are best friends, but the
oboe and flute duet sounds disjointed, as if underscoring a growing
distance between them. Talk of college creates a small rift in their
relationship, as the story evolves to reveal a shocking and emotional
"Brilliantly executed." (Matt Schley, Japan Times)
