    Comments

    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 Chikamatsu Monzaemon's play "Heike Nyogo no Shima", which stars Nakamura Hashinosuke in the prestigious role of Shunkan.

    27th edition of a yearly educational Kabuki tour in the Kansai provinces.
