The first show will take place at the Kanagawa Kenmin Hall, Yokohama, on September 17, while the remaining three will be at the Bunka Kaikan, Tokyo, on September 21, 24 and 26, 2023.
The historical production by Franco Zeffirelli will be conducted by Michele Mariotti; Sonya Yoncheva will be partnered by Vittorio Grigolo as Mario Cavaradossi and Roman Burdenko as Barone Scarpia.
