[Event with free admission!] Nov 24 "Today is Opera Day"

2018 Nov.10 (Sat)


We are pleased to announce an event with free admission "Today is Opera Day" on November 24th, the memorial day when an opera was performed for the first time in Japan!

We will have a talk show & mini-concert at KITTE building in Marunouchi as a pre-event for the Summer Festival Opera 2019-20 Japan↔Tokyo↔World "Turandot".

Date & Time: Sat, Nov 24, 2018 15:30-16:30 
Venue: KITTE 1F Atrium Event Space (Access)

As a talk show guest, Haruhi Ryoga, who has performed the role of Calaf in "Hou-Ou-Den: Legend of the Phoenix" (the original work is the same with opera "Turandot") at her Takarazuka theater period, is joining the host Satoshi Asaoka who is known as Opera & Classical Music Sommelier. Led by Asaoka, they try to figure out the fascination of "Turandot" which is a love story based in Asia and is a beloved work of Puccini.

At the mini-concert, gorgeous artists such as Japanese talented opera singers Toshiaki Murakami, Ryoko Sunakawa who are the casts of "Turandot", and BIWAKO HALL Vocal Ensemble will perform various pieces with a lecture. Please enjoy the brilliant time underneath the KITTE's Christmas tree.
