Performance content

In May, the first performance to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the foundation, the National Theatre performance will be enjoyed in two programs from the fourth performance of kabuki three genres called "dance", "period" and "care".
The program Sonoichi is a two-piece 叟 "Dance Manipulated 3rd" and "Keita's Kinta".
"Dance 3rd 叟" is one of the most popular dances "Sanban 叟" to wish for a rich harvest of five grains. A gorgeous and humorous dance in which an "invisible thread" can be seen between a dancer dressed as a yarn puppeteer and a puppeteer.
"Keita no Kinta" is a performance of the original comedy of The Coming ForwardZa based on three classics' classics, re-tailored as a kabuki care. The "avenge play" that was prepared by the entertainment of cherry blossom viewing is real before you know it?! With the ensemble of the forward seat and the teamwork unique to the theater company, we will deliver a new care comedy. In the play, "90th Anniversary Mouth" is also entered.
Please enjoy it together with the program Sono2!
