    Educational program at the National Theatre called Kabuki Kansh˘ Ky˘shitu ("Kabuki Appreciation Class"). This is a very interesting formula for the beginners because there is lively presentation of Kabuki (or some aspects of the art like music, stage tricks or fighting scenes) on stage, followed by the spectacular "Shi-no-Kiri" scene of the classic "Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura", which includes a chűnori.
