-Workshop series for opera singers to improve their acting skills
A series of workshop sessions was held with the aim of helping opera singers improve their acting skills, with young singers recruited from the public joining singers from the performance. The workshops provided an opportunity for participants to study specialized opera acting relevant to their actual professional practice.

This company is organized by TETSU TAOSHITA, Consisting of staff members of director and production etc. The mission is “Based on the world performing arts, pursue “Artistic” and “Sociality” of the performing arts in contemporary Japan through practice”. In artistic sense, we aim to “Create new classical productions that can be performed even 100 years later”, through the continuous creation of universal works, not “transiently consumed” works. In terms of sociality, we emphasize not only performance, but also the “process” that creates (theater) in each of the producers, performers, and audiences, and develops activities that are conscious of how they engage with society for each project.
Taking advantage of knowledge and experience of TETSU TAOSHITA, who has been involved in many productions in Japan and abroad, we hope to make a high quality work of opera, musical and straight play, and long-term efforts to make development of performing arts. At the same time, we aim for the performance of high-quality work in all over Japan, mainly in Tokyo, to make theater culture well-knowing and improved. Moreover, I am pleased if it can appeal to the world and be able to play for the art culture of Japan.
