Nissay Theatre has the following programs to commend skilled stage technicians and to provide a training ground for prospective theatre technicians
In cooperation with Nippon Life Insurance Company, the Nissay Theatre has developed the "Nissay Masterpiece Series" to invite children and young people to a great variety of genres of performances including operas, classical concerts and puppet plays for free.
Since 1993, our 30th anniversary, we have introduced our series of performances at reasonable prices in the hope that children and their parents will appreciate full-scale performing arts. And from 2010, we changed the name to the "Nissay Theatre Family Festival" and have introduced a wider range of family-friendly performances.
Deutsche Oper Berlin, with the opening of the theater in 1963, we have introduced the highest level of performing arts by talented opera singers and staff active in Japan and abroad.
We have rewarded stage technicians who support the performing arts and excel at their craft, and "stagehands."
This award was established in 1995 in order to spotlight staff that performs services essential to stage making behind the curtain and reward their efforts and to encourage development of the next generation of stage technicians and stagehands.
This forum was started for the purpose of development and support of stage technicians in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the Nissay Culture Foundation in 1993. The stage settings, lighting, acoustic systems and costumes actually used on the stage of the Nissay Opera are used in this forum, and it has received a great response as a training ground where young stage technicians and "stagehands" are trained by front-line professionals.
