    Comments

    Ichikawa Danjűr˘ plays the roles of Nuregami Ch˘gor˘ ("Sum˘ba"), Tar˘ Kaja ("Su˘ Otoshi") and Yoshidaya Kizaemon ("Kuruwa Bunsh˘").

    Nakamura Ganjir˘ plays two of his best roles: the courtesan Ohatsu ("Sonezaki Shinjű") and the handsome young lover Fujiya Izaemon ("Yoshidaya").

    The good surprise of this program is the Shinnosuke-Shibajaku duo performing in Kawatake Mokuami's "Yuki no Yűbe Iriya no Azemichi". Shibajaku plays the role of the courtesan Michitose and Shinnosuke is her lover Naojir˘.
