This month's program is performed by the troupe lead by the popular star Ichikawa Ebizō.
In the Matinee, plays that represent the 'family art' of the Ichikawa Danjūrō line (one of the representative kabuki families), a masterpiece of the 'Shin Kabuki' ('New Kabuki') genre, and a dance drama will be performed.
In the Evening Show, Ichikawa Ebizō, who will succeed to the important name of Ichikawa Danjūrō XIII next spring, enacts 13 roles with quick-changes and aerial stunts in a full-length play filled with highlights.
