    Comments

    Revival at the National Theatre of Tsuruya Nanboku IV's new year sogamono drama "Okuni Iri Soga Nakamura", which was premiered the 1st lunar month of 1825 at the Nakamuraza. It is entitled "Kiku Ichiza Reiwa no Adauchi" (In Japanese). As this is usually the case for the new year program, the zagashira is Living National Treasure Onoe Kikugor˘. Kiku Ichiza in the new title means the troupe led by Kikugor˘, Reiwa is of course the Reiwa era and adauchi (revenge) is a hint at the sogamono. Two hanamichi are used in this production.
