Celebration of ancient Japanese arts, in music, song & dance

Japan Spectacular is a one night only celebration of Japan's ancient art forms at the iconic Sydney Opera House.

Featuring today's most celebrated artists, this gala concert event will feature an extraordinary showcase of ancient Japanese arts, in music, song and dance. Feel the passion and the beat of drums, admire the beautiful costumes and immerse yourself in the magical sounds of traditional Japan.

Highlights include:

  • Performance Ikebana to beautiful Japanese zither music played by virtuoso Satsuki Odamura, song and dance by award winning Okinawa Sanshin player Mion.

  • Witness the powerful masculine dance of Oni Kenbai, a Buddhist ritual dance that symbolises good spirits driving away the bad.

  • Get up close to the beautiful silk worn by Kimono Dancer, Hirogiku Nishikawa and the precision and flashing blade of Samurai Dancer, Ryou Arai.

  • Finally, hear the delicate melodies of the shakuhachi and thunderous impact of the odaiko, from award winning Taikoz drummers, who demonstrate their international reputation for vibrant, explosive performance.

    Never before seen at the Opera House - an event not to be missed!
