Sakamoto writes on her official website, "I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to those who have been looking forward to my performance and to all the people involved. I love 'The Little Prince,' which I myself was impressed by when I saw it at the theater as a child. I play from the bottom of my heart that the performance will be a success."
