One of the world's leading opera houses, the Teatro alla Scala known as the "Temple of Opera", will return to Japan for the first time since 2013, with a team of 500 artists and staff of the highest caliber. It will arguably leave another great, lasting impression on the audiences in Japan in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics year.

On this occasion, the Teatro alla Scala brings two operas. One is Giacomo Puccini's Tosca conducted by Music Director Riccardo Chailly. It will be in new production directed by Davide Livermore, which was premiered in Milan in December 2019 and received huge public and critical acclaim. The other is Giuseppe Verdi's most famous opera La traviata in the sumptuous, iconic production of the Teatro alla Scala by Liliana Cavani. It will be conducted by Zubin Mehta.
