Ballet meets videogames: The Dragon Quest ballet


3:54 PM on 12.07.2008



By now, we've seen a lot of ways videogames have been brought into our everyday lives. Why just yesterday, Dale posted a video of a guy driving a go-cart in the streets of France mimicking Mario Kart. Now, thanks to Dtoider Tascar, I think I have seen every possible way videogames can be brought into real life. 

The Dragon Quest ballet is performed by the Star Dancers Ballet of Japan, and it first debuted in 1995. They've had annual performances ever since, and in 2002, the group released a DVD of their performance, which you can purchase here. YouTuber tutti816 recently uploaded the entire performance for the Internets to enjoy.

I've never played any of the games, so I don't know if the play is following any of the storylines from the Dragon Quest series, although I recognize Taloon from Dragon Quest IV. I do know they're definitely playing music from the Dragon Quest games here throughout the play.

The play is split up into 13 parts and you can check out the entire performance after the jump.

Dragon Quest II is now available on your phone, (not you, Windows Phone users) something that would have surely been unthinkable when the classic role-playing game first debuted over two decades ago. I'm over here imagining playing it using a rotary dial now. Thanks, Obama. Dragon Quest II [iTunes, Google Play]more
