Message from the Chair
One of my missions is to produce an opera that will be internationally acknowledged and loved by people even hundreds of years after its birth. It was a challenging decision but we decided to go back to square one of the project and will start MITSUKO project round two.
In the next round, we plan to allow both librettist and composers to be more creative and flexible to produce the work.
Once again my deepest thanks to entrants in the MITSUKO Competition 2019.

Results for MITSUKO Composition Competition 2019:

Dear composers;

I thank all participants for your entries. There were many notable pieces and I have earnestly listened to them. As the result, all of them did not pass the selection process to my regrets. The reason is all arias were not as touching as to give me goosebumps.

Sawakami Opera Foundation is preparing for the second call for the best Japanese language opera MITSUKO. We will redo the libretto production so the composers can increase their creativity image.
It means;
1.Reflecting on the past failure of the librettos being story-telling like and too long, new librettos will be play like based on three acts opera and rhyming poem sentences.
2.Aiming for Italian opera, Puccini and Verdi among other things. Poetic librettos to realize beautiful music melody for all composers are necessary.

We plan to start accepting composition entries based on new librettos in the middle of June this year. For all composers who believe you are the one, please compose wonderful music.
