After a morning off, today the students took in a Kabuki performance at the National Theater. Designed specifically for newcomers to kabuki, the show started with an explanation of important parts of the stage, music, and props before the real performance began.
The play Sanjusangendo Munagi no Yurai, told the story of a willow tree spirit and her family, a tragic performance about love and loss. Although at times classical music made people sleepy, the show was a hit among students.
