About the Cerulean Tower Noh Theatre
The Cerulean Tower Noh Theatre opened in May 2001 at the old site of the Tokyu Corporation headquarters, as a follow-up to Bunkamura, in accordance with the late Noboru Goto's grand vision "to redevelop Shibuya into the center of culture." As a facility designed to present traditional cultures to the world, the theatre hosts diverse performances, from Noh and Kyogen performances to collaborative performances with foreign cultures such as ballet and classical music. Moreover, the theatre can be used for a wide range of purposes in addition to Noh and Kyogen, including traditional arts such as Japanese dance, traditional Japanese music and Rakugo storytelling; dramatic performances and concerts; and as a space for cultural exchanges including recitals. Various organizations and companies also use the theatre for commissioned performances, drawing attention as a new type of noh theatre.
