In Part 1, you can see a masterpiece of the 'jidaimono' (history play) genre, together with an interesting dance in which many horrible ghosts appear. In Part 2, we present a brand-new work, the fourth in a series of humorous and popular plays. Finally, in Part 3, you can enjoy a play portraying the revenge of the kabuki actor Yukinojō, featuring Bandō Tamasaburō, kabuki's top female role specialist, who also directs the play.
