Precious Pieces supported Harmonia Opera Company
Harmonia Opera Company was created by Emiko Iinuma in 1981 for the purpose of promoting an artistic bond between Japan and America. Many Western composers have been inspired to write operas with a Japanese background, and Japanese composers have answered this trend by assimilating a Western musical style into their works. The company presents operas that embody both styles of this mutual musical inspiration. They perform, in the greater New York area, operas, and musicals which portray Japanese culture in a manner enjoyable and intelligible to American tastes.--------- Click to continue
