Osaka Shochikuza Theatre (at OSAKA) Theatre Information

This play was first performed in November 2011 as the 3rd Sistine Kabuki Production at the Ōtsuka International Museum in Tokushima Prefecture. Though the protagonist Ishikawa Goemon is known to every Japanese as an unparalleled master thief, in this play he appears as the red-haired son born of a daughter of Shiōden Tajima no kami, a chief retainer of Akechi Mitsuhide, and a Spanish priest. He even dances the flamenco. With this fantastic character setting and stylish stage set the play attracted a lot of public attention, becoming a great hit which has been repeatedly performed.
By public request, it will be performed again at the Osaka Shochikuza Theatre for the first time in seven years.
