NNT Opera Studio “Il Campiello”
Founded in April 1998, New National Theatre’s Opera Studio is Japan’s first theatre-affiliated training institute for those seeking a career in opera. The program offers opportunities for the trainee singers to perform on stage at NNTT three times a year, which in turn offers audiences the chance to enjoy a variety of operas while “discovering” the future talents of Japan. This March, NNT Opera Studio presents “Il Campiello” (The Little Square) by Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari, marking the students’ final performance before they set out to become professional opera singers. Sung in Italian with Japanese subtitles, this comedic three-act opera deals with the fractious locals who live or hang out on a square in Venice.
