Update: Teatro dell'Opera di Roma 2023 Japan Tour

As previously announced, the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma's Japan tour is scheduled for September 2023 to present La traviata in Sofia Coppola's production and Tosca in Franco Zeffirelli's production. 

In the course of discussion with the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma against a backdrop of increasing international socio-economic instability, it has become unavoidable to make some changes to the performance dates below. We appreciate your kind understanding.

Meanwhile, we are delighted to announce that Tosca will also be conducted by Music Director of the Teatro Dell'Opera di Roma Michele Mariotti and that Baron Scarpia will be sung by Roman Burdenko.

Please see the changes and updates below underlined.
