"We are entering the age of opera-going in Tokyo". With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics approaching, the idea long incubated by Artistic Director ONO of 'Made in Japan Opera' being the host of the world is finally coming to fruition. This Season will be capped off by "Turandot", a large-scale co-production by many theatres nationwide: Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, as well as Biwako Hall and the Sapporo Cultural Arts Theatre. ONO himself will be taking up the conductor's baton in the pit, with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, of which he is the musical director. It is directed by Alex OLLÉ, who heads the internationally acclaimed theatrical group La Fura Dels Baus and directed a number of major operas and events, including the opening ceremony for the Barcelona Olympics. Also worthy of note are the star-studded cast and the chorus, comprising the New National Theatre Chorus, the Fujiwara Opera Chorus Group and the Biwako Hall Vocal Ensemble.

There are plans for a similar co-production of WAGNER's festive masterpiece "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" in 2020.
