Japan Tobacco international is the international division of Japan Tobacco (JT), a global leader in the manufacture and sale of tobacco products. As part of its social commitment initiatives, specifically in its support of opera and the visual arts, Japan Tobacco International has a genuine interest in promoting the development of projects that will enrich the cultural life of the countries in which it operates, promoting an accessible culture and helping to project an image of Madrid as a global reference point for art and culture. 

We wholeheartedly support the private sector collaborating in public campaigns to develop culture, and, it goes without saying, to ensure that major cultural events such as this one are accessible to society as a whole. These activities help Madrid on its way to becoming a global reference point for culture, this being one of our local aims when we support icons of culture such as the Thyssen Museum.
