ROH on tour - Japan 2010

While patientely waiting for the broadcast of the Kennedy Awards, there are news. See HERE the bigger picture
Royal Opera House announced the tour in Japan that will take place in September 2010, in Tokyo and Yokohama. The announcement can be found in "About the House", a magazine that is sent to the friends of ROH once in a while. The article has a big title: Gheorghiu and Netrebko lead Royal Opera tour in Japan. Two productions go on tour:
* Richard Eyre's La Traviata - Angela Gheorghiu, James Valenti and Simon Keenlynside
* Laurent Pelly's Manon - Anna Netrebko and Matthew Polenzani
There'll be a total of eight performaces, all conducted by Antonio Pappano. The article doesn't give precise dates for the operas. But Angela's appearances were posted on her OFFICIAL WEBSITE long time ago:
* 12/09/2010 - Yokohama
* 16/09/2010 - Tokyo
* 19/09/2010 - Tokyo
* 22/09/2010 - Tokyo
The opera houses in Tokyo and Yokohama haven't published anything on the event yet.
And if you feel like taking a break from work in September and want to visit... let's say... Tokyo and Yokohama :), Royal Opera House organizes a trip there. A combination of performances, stage rehearsals, insight events, social events with the artists and Company and exclusive day trips to incredible places make these tours an experience to remember. I bet on that! The program is organized by "Travel for the Arts" and on top of the cost of the trip a donation is requested.


  1. Just imagine you would go to see her in Tokyo and then she would cancel... that would suck - BIG TIME ;-) Just joking. Thanks for the info!
