A co-production of a grand opera in which multiple theaters and groups in Japan work together to create the finest stage. This year, we present the "Turandot", a work by Italian genius composer Puccini who produced masterpieces such as "Tosca", "Madame Butterfly" and "La Boheme", at three theaters nationwide.

The stage of this work, which is filled with brilliant masterpieces such as "Nobody should sleep," is in Beijing, China during the legendary era. Princess Turandot, a beautiful woman who hides deep wounds in her heart with icy coldness. A proud wandering prince Karafu who challenges the life of a mystery that is a condition of marriage, challenged by the blood of a beautiful princess seen in the dark night. And Ryu, a kind-hearted servant who does not give in torture and sticks to her love for carafe. Dramatically depicts the lives of the three people who are hungry for the "real feeling of living" and the "desire for death" hidden there, and trying to stick to their beliefs.

The conductor, pianist, will be Albert Veronesi, the music director of the "Puccini Festival", an opera festival in Torre del Lago, Italy. The production and choreography is Sakiko Oshima, who is highly acclaimed worldwide for her sharp perspective on contemporary society, outstanding spatial composition, and beautiful and magnificent production and choreography. The title rolls are dramatic beautiful voice diva Naomi Tasaki and Masako Okada. Kei Fukui, who gives off a sense of scale to the role of Prince Carafe, and the expected nova tenor, Yoshimichi Serizawa. Hiromi Omura, who played the role of Liu for the first time in two years as a Japanese starring at the Puccini Festival, and Ryoko Sunagawa, a prima representing Japan. Naoko Shirakawa, who is an educated dancer, is attracted by overwhelming physical expression. In addition, the soloists and staff who carry on the Japanese opera world will gather.

At home and abroadPlease look forward to the majestic and dreamy "Turandot" created by Elite!
