As the third most in-demand subgenre in the world, anime is a unique style of animation popular for its multi-layered storylines and boundary-pushing themes. At this limited-edition Candlelight concert event, you’ll experience the magic of listening to iconic and beloved music from some of the most popular anime franchises!
The themes of Naruto, Inuyasha, Attack on Titan, Sailor Moon, and Dragon Ball are just some of the timeless classics that will be performed. If you’re an anime fan, you won’t want to miss the chance to experience these tracks in a new light.
Alternative realities, big dreams, figure skaters, and predestined soldiers are some of the riveting details of anime worlds. Fans are all too familiar with the profound depth and relatability of the storylines driving their favorite series. Given the extraordinary quality of the storytelling, it is only fitting that the accompanying theme songs are just as captivating. Anime music is renowned for its long melodies that manage to capture the essence of the series they represent.
This anime-inspired Candlelight concert series will kick off at the newly renovated Simons Theatre at The New England Aquarium. Rasa String Quartet will sweep you away with nostalgic anime tracks. Expect to hear music from Detective Conan, Your Name, and renditions of works by Joe Hisaishi composed for Studio Ghibli.
After having enormous success around the world—in cities like London, Manchester, Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris—Candlelight brings its unique experience to The Simons Theatre to pay musical tribute to an influential and seemingly underrated art form.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
