The New National Theatre in Tokyo has cancelled its opera and ballet season, due to open this week. The opera was Manon Lescaut, the ballet (David) Bintley’s Choice. Foreign singers, mostly Italian, are on their way home.
We have to announce that all shows scheduled from March15 to March31 are cancelled and will not be rescheduled. The circumstances caused by aftershock sequence following the earthquake on March 11 make it very difficult for us to present the performances.
Shows & Events Cancelled:
March 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30 Opera Manon Lescaut
March 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 Ballet Bintley’s Choice
March 22 Ballet Event Rehearsal from Take Five and Talk by David Bintley
Refund information will be posted separately on this website.
