This December, the New National Theatre Tokyo (NNTT) will present Giacomo Puccini’s opera “Tosca.”

Despite the passing of Wakasugi Hiroshi, the artistic director of NNTT, in July 2009, production has gone on and is set to be more lavish then ever. This is the first “Tosca” production at NNTT since 2003 and will be performed by Japan’s oldest classical orchestra, the Tokyo Philharmonic.
