The March program at the Kabukiza Theatre (Tokyo) has begun!
This month, the matinee begins with a parody of the popular play 'Narukami', followed by a dance, and then a 'sewamono', a category of plays portraying the lives of ordinary people in the Edo period (1603-1868). The 'sewamono' play includes a very rarely performed scene. In the Evening Show a masterpiece of the 'history play' genre is performed, after which will be a popular 'sewamono' play that casts two star actors each for three main roles, and a dance. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy kabuki in spring in Tokyo.
