I am very much looking forward to collaborating with the extremely talented musicians.
They inspired me to arrange the piece so that each member will have a transcendental phrase to play that will take your breath away. I am certain this type of arrangement has never been done before in the usual orchestral concerts.
The arrangement was done so that the fans of Touhou will instantly notice the small tricks and glimmers I laid throughout the pieces and discover new aspects to the already familiar song. I hope everyone will enjoy the brand new world of the Touhou Project.

Some of you might wonder "An opera of Touhou Project??" The world ZUN depicted is purely astonishing, and with much respect to ZUN and his original works, I wrote the script and lyrics to harmonize with the fairytale-esque atmosphere. All music pieces are well-known so there is no need to stiffen up and be so formal. If you're a fan of Touhou, rest assured it will be an amazing experience.
I myself am a fan of Touhou. With Kunio's arrangement based on his deep understanding of the Touhou music and amazing performance of the top-tier musicians of Japan, I am very much looking forward to the performance.
Please enjoy the holidays reminiscing about the magical world where game meets reality, in the echoes of the beautiful music pieces of Touhou.
