Tokyo Opera City Charm and Fun

There are many attractions in the theater, hall and gallery of Tokyo Opera City.I’ll tell you a lot about the appeal of opera, ballet, concerts and events.

Concert Hall

The concert hall of Tokyo Opera City is also known as “Takemitsu Memorial.”.

The hall is a shoe box type hall, and the concert hall is a concert hall that has been reevaluated recently as it has been reevaluated as a concert hall.

The interior of the hole is made of natural wood, and it has a natural and delicate ceiling and a ceiling.This creates a rich sound and a good reverberation time (1.96 seconds when full).The ceiling is shaped as a deformed pyramid.There is a skylight with natural light, and with natural trees, you can feel the natural taste of natural wood while staying in the hall.

There is a balcony seat on the second and third floors, and the audience and the player can communicate more with each other, and it is a hole with a sense of unity.

In addition, a free lunch time concert, such as the performance of the pipe organ, is held at an irregular time.Please check the event information and go out.

Event URL : http://www.tokyooperacity.co.jp/event/

Recital Hole

This is a recital hole with a shoe box type of about 14 m × 20 m.

The ceiling is 8 meters and the reverberation is 1.2 seconds when it is full.The hall is so large that it is often used in indoor music, chorus, recital, recital, piano contests, and so on.The rear 3 columns of the audience seat are arranged with a chair with high legs, and it is considered to be easy to watch.

Art Gallery

At the art gallery on the third floor of Tokyo Opera City, there are exhibitions of modern art, as well as a collection of artwork from the post-war art called Takeda Collection.

There are four galleries, two of them are 6 m tall, and the other 2 are ceiling height.It is an exhibition room with a change of 8 meters.The exhibition room is a white cube called white cube, so it can be exhibited more flexibly and freely in empty space.Please come to see the white space and see what kind of space it will become.

In addition, young writers exhibit their works by using a narrow space called “Corridor Le.”.It is a gallery where the rearing of new authors was thought to be possible.

New National Theater

The New National Theater has 3 theaters, Opera Theater, Middle Theater, and Small Theater, where the Opera, ballet, modern dance, and theatrical performances are held.At the National Theater in Chiyoda Ward, Japanese traditional arts such as Kabuki, Japanese dance, and theater are performed, while the New National Theater is performing opera and ballet based on modern stage art and overseas.

The largest opera theater in the 3 halls is known as “Opera Palace Tokyo.”.In a hall with 4 faces, there is an orchestra pit with up to 120 orchestras, and there is a permanent orchestra where you can find up to the orchestra pit.From the second to fourth floors, the hall is perfect for opera and ballet, with a balcony seat.

The Middle Theater is a proscenium hall with 4 faces, and plays mainly theater and modern dance performances.

The small theater has a movable stage and a movable seat, so you can set various stage settings and customer seats, and it is often used for the performance of the current stage.

In the New National Theater, there are various performances, such as opera, ballet and the performance of the modern stage performance.I am excited just looking at the event schedule.Why don’t you find the program you’re interested in and go out to the theater?

NTT InterCommunication Center

On the fourth floor of Tokyo Opera City, there is an entrance to NTT InterCommunication Center (abbreviated ICC) Museum.

Open space can be viewed for free.The event is paid by event.Art exhibitions are usually held using various technologies that are transmitted by the media.The program for kids is held in summer, and it is very popular because it is an event where you can experience and play.

Omiraku Hall

Omi-Gakudo is a hall with 120 seats (a type where you can arrange a chair).This is a small hall with a dome-shaped ceiling like a chapel.Mini concerts such as indoor music and voice music are held.Because of the small hall, the distance with the performer is very close, so you can feel the expression of the performer and the breath.

Also, a free lunch time concert is held at a time.It is a small hall, so it is a first 100 event, so why don’t we enjoy a nice mini concert for free?
