Tsuruya Nanboku IV's new year sogamono drama "Okuni-iri Soga Nakamura" was premiered in the 1st lunar month of 1825  at the Nakamuraza [casting]. Three dance-drama were staged within this new year program: the Tokiwazu-based dance "Ch˘ no Hakaze Ume-ni Shibaraku", the Kiyomoto-based dance "Sode-ga-Ura Namida no Harusame" and the Kiyomoto-based dance "Sono Uwasa Sakura no Irodoki" . This new year drama mixed several sekai as it was a sogamono, a gonpachi-komurasakimono, a sankatsu-hanshichimono and an oshun-denbŕmono. It also added elements from the kantsűmono "Yari no Gonza".
This drama, which fell into oblivion, was revived under the title "Kiku Ichiza Reiwa no Adauchi" at the National Theatre in January 2020. The zagashira for this revival was Living National Treasure Onoe Kikugor˘ [more details]. Kiku Ichiza in the new title meant the troupe led by Kikugor˘ (kiku ichiza), Reiwa was of course the Reiwa era and adauchi (revenge) was a crystal clear hint at a sogamono.

 The opening day was the 20th day of the 1st lunar month of the 8th year of the Bunsei era, which was the 9th of March 1825 in the western calendar.
 It was a revival of Sakurada Jisuke I's Tomimoto-based dance-drama, which was premiered in the 3rd lunar month of 1783 in Edo at the Nakamuraza and which ended the nibanme program of the new year sogamono drama "Edo no Hana Mimasu Soga". This dance-drama is still in the Kabuki repertoire and it is commonly called "Migawari Oshun".
