For dance fans, there’s the promise of some glittering Golden Week holiday reunions as David Bintley, long-time director of the Birmingham Royal Ballet, returns here with that company for the first time since his four-year stint doubling up as artistic director of the National Ballet of Japan ended last June.

This time, he’s bringing two exciting productions — first, “Swan Lake,” a favorite of Tokyo audiences that ran April 25-27 at Bunka Kaikan, followed by the Japan premiere of the English choreographer’s version of “Cinderella,” being staged May 1-3 at the same venue.
