[Directing: Giorgio · Barberio · Corsetti Comment]
"Sanshin opera" is a work that Brecht made 100 years ago, but it is also a very useful story to modern times. I would like to see this work not only for those who buy tickets and theaters to watch, but also for those passing by. And we recommend that you bring a chair to everyone like that. If you step into Nishiguchi Park during the performance, you probably will not be able to leave the place.
