The Opera theatre Konnyakuza will re-create an adaptation of The Caucasian Chalk Circle (originally written by Bertolt Brecht, an adaptation by Tsunetoshi Hirowatari and music composed by Hikaru Hayashi), for the first time in 25 years. The production had a long run though 1978 to 1990, and it was highly acclaimed as “the production that innovate the history of Japanese Opera”.
