    15th edition of Nakamura Kankur˘'s summer program at the Kabukiza, the famous Hachigatsu N˘ry˘ Kabuki (literally "the August cool-breeze Kabuki"). A very good selection of plays and dances, including the rare dance "Kumo no Hy˘shimai" (with Nakamura Fukusuke in the role of the spirit of the spider), the drama "Ranpei Monogurui" (its highlight is one of the most spectacular tachimawari in Kabuki, with Band˘ Mitsugor˘ in the leading role) and Tsuruya Nanboku IV's ghost play "T˘kaid˘ Yotsuya Kaidan".
