The Teatro dell'Opera di Roma returns to Japan for the first time since 2018. Japan Performing Arts Foundation is all the more delighted to announce this news as we have been forced to postpone all the opera performances that had been planed for three years since the outbreak of COVID-19.

Led by conductor Michele Mariotti who will assume the title of the Company's Music Director on 1 November 2022, the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma will present two masterpieces in sumptuous productions: La traviata in Sophia Coppola's production which won huge public and critical acclaim on their last Japan tour in 2018, and Tosca in Franco Zeffirelli's production. 2023 is the great film and stage director's 100th birth anniversary.

Both operas will be sung by the captivating cast. In La traviata, soprano Lisette Oropesa stars as Violetta, opposite tenor Francesco Meli as Alfredo Germont, and baritone Amartuvshin Enkhbat as Giorgio Germont. In Tosca, soprano Sonya Yoncheva takes on the title role, and tenor Vittorio Grigolo as Mario Cavaradossi.

The tour begins on Sunday 10 September 2023. Ticket information will be announced at a later date.
