About

The New National Theatre, Tokyo

The New National Theatre, Tokyo (NNTT) is Japan's only national theatre dedicated to the performing arts of Opera, Ballet, Dance and Drama. Since we opened in 1997, the NNTT has presented world-class performances not only at our theatre in Tokyo but also at many regional theatres, and has come to occupy a familiar and much-loved place in the nation's cultural life.

The NNTT comprises the Opera House, Playhouse and the Pit, each of which uniquely contributes to an annual total of about 300 stage performances to the delight of approx. 200,000 theatregoers, including many visitors from overseas. The theatre is constantly active in staging productions, by itself or in collaboration with other theatres throughout Japan and overseas.

New National Theatre Chorus and the National Ballet of Japan are the two resident companies of the NNTT. NNT Chorus inaugurated since the 1998/1999 Season performs in most of the opera productions produced by NNTT. Their activities go beyond operatic performances while they also appear at other concert halls and music festivals. Meanwhile, the National Ballet of Japan (NBJ) was founded in 1997 as the first ballet company in Japan resident of a Theatre.

The NNTT is also involved in educational programmes for high school students for their first time opera, ballet for children, free lectures, talk sessions and workshops, and other initiatives. What’s more, the NNTT has Opera Studio, Ballet School and Drama School within the theatre complex.
