An Evening of Kabuki Dance
March 27, 2012
The Japan Society of Boston is delighted to present an evening of colorful dance pieces from the classic Japanese Kabuki repertory. This single performance will be a highlight of a series of festive spring events celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 1912 gift of cherry trees from Japan to the United States. Famed Kabuki actor-dancer Kotoji Bando and his troupe will perform three beautiful and dramatic dance-plays, including the brilliant Yoshino-Yama, a poetic dance of love amid the mountains covered with cherry blossoms.
