“Skyggen – A Chamber Opera by Aya Yoshida” is a collaborative project between artists from Denmark and Japan celebrating the 150th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Denmark and Japan.
In 2017 Japan and Denmark are celebrating the 150 years anniversary of diplomatic friendship. For our organization, NPO Japanordic, this is an occasion to increase and promote the cultural understanding between the two countries by realizing a unique musical performance. During 2017 the young Japanese composer Aya Yoshida has been working intensively on creating a chamber opera inspired by the story ”Skyggen” by the Danish national poet Hans Christian Andersen. The visual part of the performance is created by the Danish artist Magnus Pind Bjerre and the Japanese calligrapher Suitou Nakatsuka. The performance is premiered in the old Chapel of Assistens Kirkegård on the 16th of November 2017.
