“An Evening of Final Fantasy” @Sydney Opera House

10th April 2016

Dear Chibi,

Today Hubby and I went to see “An Evening of Final Fantasy” presented by Nathankct and Joelle at the Sydney Opera House. A big thank you to the kind folks at The Japan Foundation Sydney, for giving away a free double pass :D (Tickets are normally $79-$99) We attended the 3.30pm session at the Utzon Room, where we also saw Emily, Mel, MZ, Amy, Somps, Dong and co.

I’ve previously seen 2 other Final Fantasy music performances; “Distant Worlds” in 2011, and “A Night in Fantasia” (so long ago I can’t even remember when ;D)  This will be our first time seeing a solo pianist and vocalist.

“Nathankct, performing on grand piano, in collaboration with international star vocalist JOELLE, seeks to delight and entertain, translating the personal into the universal through his own arrangements of both classics and rarely heard gems from Final Fantasy I through XIII; Performing one night only in the unique and intimate Utzon Room of the Sydney Opera House, and with iconic views of art, and windows looking out to the ocean.”

Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY @Sydney

Distant Worlds

Dear Chibi,

Last night Jacky and I went to see the much anticipated “Distant Worlds” Final Fantasy concert at the Sydney Opera House~the experience was mind blowing! I enjoyed every second of it and was left in awe. We had really good seats because Jacky had known about it for a while and had bought tickets 5 months ago. The composer Nobuo Uematsu also attended which was probably Jacky’s highlight of the night~He was a funny man 8D

We forgot to take the program before we entered so we weren’t sure which songs were going to be played. My favourite from the night had to be FFX’s “Suteki da ne“, “To Zanarkand” and FF VIII’s “Liberi Fatali. Kanon, the vocalist for Suteki da ne was amazing…she has such a beautiful soothing voice. They also had a screen behind which showed scenes from the games which was a really nice touch. Oh, the fond memories.

Throughout the evening I constantly got goosebumps because of just how overwhelmingly epic the orchestra was. ahhhh…

This is the best present ever. Thanks so much Jacky for taking me here.
<3 Happy 4 Year Anniversary :D
