                           Ⓒ松竹株式会社 無断転載禁止

Living National Treasure of Kabuki performance Bando Tamasaburo returns to MOA Museum of Art.

The program includes a lecture on the stage costumes, in which the actor himself explains the themes, patterns, and technical secrets of traditional Kabuki costume.

On the stage, he performs two Nagauta programs: Oimatsu and Shizu no Odamaki. The accompanying ensemble includes Kineya Katsukuni (Living National Treasure) on shamisen, as well as Kineya Katsushiro, Tanaka Denzaemon, and Kawase Roshu.

Shizu no Odamaki is a Nagauta repertoire of all-time favorite, a homage to young lady Shizukagozen, a mistress of war hero Minamoto no Yoshitsune. The lovers had to part as Yoshitsune is exiled by his stepbrother Yoritomo. The lord Yoritomo takes her away to Kamakura, where he and his wife make this young lady perform a ‘mai’ dance. On the stage, she becomes overwhelmed by her loving thoughts for the man of her life, wishing for his safety. The warlord becomes offended by her disgrace — fine sentimental proses and rich theatrical finesse make the story breathtakingly beautiful.
