NOTICE: Cancellation of Performances, Temporary Suspension of Ticket Sales, and Review of Dates for Start of Ticket Sales
We at the New National Theatre, Tokyo have already decided to cancel performances that had been scheduled to be held in May. At this time, we have also decided to cancel performances that were scheduled to be held in June, owing to extension of the state of emergency declaration by the Japanese government, which has made it difficult to proceed with preparations for performances.
Similarly, we have decided to cancel Educational Programme for High School Students "Yuzuru" (The Twilight Heron).
In addition, Invitational Programme for Performing Arts in the Region: Biwako Hall "Princess KAGUYA" is being cancelled on the basis of a decision by the Biwako Hall Center for the Performing Arts, Shiga.
At present, the conditions for resumption of theatrical performances remain unclear. For this reason, we have decided to temporarily suspend sales of tickets for all performances, for the time being. As for the dates for the start of future ticket sales, we are going to make a review of all pertinent factors, and will provide related information on our website once decisions have been made on the schedule and procedure after the resumption of ticket sales.
