The theater company Shiki announced that a total of 10 people, including performers from the musical Aladdin, which is being performed in Tokyo, were infected with the new coronavirus. The performance was temporarily canceled, but it is said that all performers have been replaced and resumed.
According to the theater company Shiki, on the 9th of this month, one of the performers of the musical “Aladdin” performing at a theater in Minato-ku, Tokyo, showed symptoms of fever, so the next day, a PCR test of a private company was conducted independently, and it was found that he was infected with the new coronavirus.
After contacting the public health center and examining 29 performers and staff certified as those with strong contact, nine more people were confirmed infected by the 16th. Both symptoms are mild.
In response to this, the troupe had canceled the performance of “Aladdin” from October 10, but from the 15th, all performers have been replaced and the performance has resumed.
At the theater company Shiki, there is a distance between the stage and the audience, and “we will continue to make every effort to prevent the infection of the new coronavirus so that people can see the theater with peace of mind.”
