Yukio Mishima’s Hanjo

WednesdaySeptember 146:30 pm


Leading up to the North American premiere of the internationally-acclaimed contemporary opera Hanjo at NYU Skirball (Sept. 30 & Oct. 2), Japan Society presents a sneak peek of this haunting opera, written by prominent Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa, based on one of Yukio Mishima’s Modern Noh Plays. New York’s Catapult Opera produces this new work, and its founder and conductor Neal Goren and director Luca Veggetti reveal their inspiration and challenges to materialize this hopeless mad-love story. The evening begins with an introduction to Mishima’s original script by Prof. Satoko Naito and a pre-recorded interview with Hosokawa, culminating in a live singing of the opera’s centerpiece aria.
