    Comments

    "Sugawara Denju Tenarai Kagami" is one of the best Kabuki plays, whose main thema is the downfall of Sugawara Michizane (called Kan Sh˘j˘ in the play), a devoted scholar, born in Ky˘to in 845, pure in heart and deed, who went on to serve the Emperor as a trusted Minister of the Right, until he fell into disfavor and was exiled. He died in the spring of 903, aged 59, and was deified and worshipped as the God of calligraphy Tenman (or Tenjin). Japan celebrates this year the 1100th anniversary of Sugawara Michizane death and the Kabukiza decided to program the 6 best acts of "Sugawara Denju Tenarai Kagami" with an amazing casting:
