Japan Society is excited to kick off its 2022-23 Performing Arts Season with a look at the inspirations and challenges behind Hanjo—a reality-bending opera written by acclaimed Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa, based on one of Yukio Mishima’s Modern Noh Plays. In this in-person talk, Italian director Luca Veggetti and Catapult Opera founder (and Hanjo conductor) Neal Goren discuss the hopeless mad-love story portrayed in Mishima’s original script ahead of the opera’s North American premiere at NYU Skirball (Sept. 30 & Oct. 2).
The evening begins with an introduction to Yukio Mishima and his famous noh play by Prof. Satoko Naito and a pre-recorded interview with Hosokawa, culminating in a live singing of the opera’s centerpiece aria.
