A Variety of Moving Stories
The whole spectrum of human emotion is covered in Kabuki, including the close bond between lord and vassal, the desire for honourable revenge, the bitterness of a lover spurned, or the love of a mother for her child. You can enjoy a variety in just one show! Each programme usually contains three different items: a history play, a dance and a domestic play, so there's a lot for everyone. You may see the grand, heroic world of the ancient samurai in jidaimono history plays; or heart-warming tales about the ordinary townsfolk in sewamono domestic plays; or, in dances, you can enjoy the poetry of beautiful movement.
