Celebrating 20 YearsOZAKI Motoki President of the New National Theatre, Tokyo

  The New National Theatre, Tokyo (NNTT) opened in autumn 1997 as Japan’s only national theatre dedicated to the contemporary performing arts of Opera, Ballet, Dance and Drama. Since then, we have produced performances of world-class quality including experimental works, winning favour with many loyal patrons over the last twenty years. During that time, audiences totaling around 3.8 million people have watched NNTT productions in our three theatres (Opera House, Playhouse, and The Pit).

  We also offer three training programmes in Opera, Ballet and Drama for nurturing performers in contemporary performing arts, and many of our graduates are now enjoying notable success on stage both in Japan and abroad. In future, we will continue our efforts to meet expectations as a national training institute producing young talented artists and specialist performers who will support the foundation of stage performances.

  NNTT will keep striving positively to create, promote interest in contemporary performing arts of the highest standard, while always placing value on our relationship with society. In order to achieve this, I would like to stage productions all over the country, as well as presenting “Educational Programme for High School Students” and “Ballet for Children”, to encourage the next generation to encounter performing arts from a young age.

  I hope we will contribute to create a rich and fulfilling society. On this 20th Anniversary Season, we have a varied and ambitious lineup of works befitting this special year, under the guidance of Artistic Directors IMORI Taijiro (Opera), OHARA Noriko (Ballet and Dance) and MIYATA Keiko (Drama). I hope you will enjoy them all.
