Apollon musagète
« Dans le rôle de Calliope, la souple et l’élancée Miyoko Koyasu a fait forte impression… dansant avec une vivacité charmante et un esprit enjoué. »
– Fjord Review

“Miyoko Koyasu (Calliope) was the best dancer I’ve ever seen perform this role. Her articulation as the muse of poetry, silently emoting the inner depths of her poems, was nothing short of superb.”
— Ludwig Van Toronto
