Live transmission of theater play to cinemas

Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp. (NTT) will conduct the first experiment of live transmission of a Takarazuka Revue performance to movie theaters this month via its optical fiber communications network. The test is to be made together with Takarazuka Creative Arts (Takarazuka City, Hyogo Pref.), Toho Theaters and some other partners. It will transmit live this month's last performance of the Takarazuka Revue 'Flower Troupe' at Tokyo Takarazuka Theater, which is scheduled for Dec. 24, to seven movie theaters in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya. The two venues in Osaka are in Umeda and Namba.
