Performing Arts

2017-18 Season

Thank you for supporting the fall/winter portion of our 2017-18 season. Featuring the contemporary chamber opera Four Nights of Dream, Hiroshi Sugimoto's Rikyu-Enoura, and a sold out run of Mugen Noh Othello, our fall/winter programs marked the first time for Japan Society to co-produce a series of international projects with prestigious organizations in Japan, and highlighted contemporary artists who continue to draw inspiration from Japan’s centuries-old noh tradition.

Please check back shortly for updates regarding our spring schedule, which offers a line-up of concerts, theatrical readings and other events. If you’d like to sign-up for our newsletter to get the latest information on our upcoming programing, please click here.
