    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 the "Shigenoi no Kowakare" scene of the play "Koi Ny˘b˘ Somewake Tazuna". in which Nakamura Tokiz˘ plays the role of Shigenoi, and the awesome dance "Ame no Gor˘", in which the main role is played by Nakamura Shinjir˘.
