    Casting

    Nakamura Senjaku, Kataoka Ainosuke

    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 "Fűin Giri" scene of Chikamatsu Monzaemon's play "Koi Bikyaku Yamato ďrai", starring Nakamura Senjaku and Kataoka Ainosuke in the roles of Kameya Chűbŕ and the courtesan Umegawa.

    Comments

    Ichikawa Ennosuke and his troupe of young and talented actors perform a modern style of theater, which they created a few years ago and called "Super Kabuki" (SűpÔ Kabuki in Chikamatsu Monzaemon's lingo): it's spectacular (lots of chűnori), the costums are gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated, the music is modern, the texts are easy to understand and the plots are as twisted as a good Kabuki classic. Usually a big commercial success!
