National Theatre (Small Theatre)
Traditional Japanese Dance and Music by Up-and-Coming Performers

Since 1980, the National Theatre has presented “Traditional Japanese Dance and Music by Up-and-Coming Performers,” our annual spring performance focused on young, talented dancers and musicians performing traditional Japanese arts and music. This year, these promising and distinguished performers will come together to play the lead roles in five programs. We look forward to showcasing their many talents and enthusiastic performances, as well as the National Theatre’s own significant leap into the future.
