Cancellation of a Tokyo Bunka Kaikan production as part of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections, and ticket refunds procedure

We regret to inform you that we made a decision to cancel Summer Festival Opera 2019-20 Japan↔Tokyo↔World “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg” scheduled on Sunday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 17.
