Japan Society’s 2017-18 Performing Arts Season

Our ambitious 2017-18 Fall/Winter Performing Arts season, planned in celebration of Japan Society's 110th anniversary, kicks off with three brilliant new Japan Society commission projects—a chamber opera, a contemporary dance production and a new noh play. This season is particularly significant in that it marks the first time the Society will co-produce a series of international projects with prestigious organizations in Japan, bringing these new works also to Japanese audiences. In today's digital era, we greatly understand the importance of live encounters and believe that these new works, shared by the people of the U.S. and Japan, celebrate an important benchmark in Japan Society's 110-year history. We invite you to join us on this special journey!

Full season details coming at the end of July!
