Minamiza Theatre (at KYOTO) Theatre Information

'Super Kabuki' was created by Ichikawa En'ō. It is a new type of kabuki with grand and spectacular stories, and a new style of direction popular with modern audiences. Ichikawa Ennosuke has inherited his spirit and developed this kind of work into 'Super Kabuki II'. The Super Kabuki play 'Oguri' caused a sensation at its first performance in 1991. Continuing that creative impulse, the play has been revised with a new script and direction by Ennosuke, and will be performed as 'Oguri, a new version', using the newly installed stage equipment of the refurbished Minamiza Theatre. Both Ichikawa Ennosuke and Nakamura Hayato will perform the leading character Oguri Hangan alternately. Please look forward to the tremendous play with its thrilling story full of dreams, romance and spectacle!
