Pharaoh no Haka (ファラオの墓; Pharaoh's Tomb) is an Engeki Joshibu musical starring Morning Musume '17 and select members of Hello Pro Kenshuusei. It is an adaptation of the manga of the same name by Takemiya Keiko which was originally published from 1974 to 1976. The musical will run from June 2 to June 11, 2017 at Ikebukuro Sunshine Theater in Tokyo.
There are two performance patterns, Taiyou no Shinden Hen (太陽の神殿編; Temple of the Sun Version) and Sabaku no Tsuki Hen (砂漠の月編; Desert Moon Version), with a few of the roles double cast.
About 4000 years ago, Egypt entered an era of war. The small country of Esteria was destroyed by its powerful neighbor, Urjna, ruled by Pharaoh Sneferu.
Prince Sariokis of Esteria has hidden as a slave that would help build the "Pharaoh's Tomb", and his younger sister Princess Nilekia has hidden in the enemy country Urjna as a maid in a priest's house.
Then Sariokis meets Princess Ankesen in the Urjna Palace. Although they are attracted to each other upon first meeting, she is the fiancée of the enemy Sneferu. At the same time, Sneferu also meets Nilekia, and they fall in love, unaware of each other's identity.
Before long, Sariokis becomes known as the legendary warrior "Desert Hawk" and rallies together many tribes persecuted by Urjna to begin an advance on Sneferu's palace.
Sariokis and Ankesen, as well as Sneferu and Nilekia, trifle with destiny. These two loves are to be swallowed up by the storm of war.
