The all-women Takarazuka Revue musical troupe says its Star Troupe will unveil a production inspired by a Taiwanese puppet show during its third tour of the island nation later this year.

Tomotsugu Ogawa, president of the Takarazuka Revue Company, told a news conference Friday in Taipei that the show, which will be performed Oct. 20 to 28 in Taipei and Nov. 2 to 5 in the southern city of Kaohsiung, will consist of two parts.

The first is a brand new production, "Thunderbolt Fantasy," inspired by Pili, the glove puppetry shows that modernized the traditional Taiwanese puppet theater known as budaixi. Pili means thunderbolt in Chinese.
