Summary
Tamasaburō Bandō, Kabuki's famous performer of female roles, appears in five Kabuki dance stories. The dance Yōkihi, featuring the character well known in China and the West as Yang Guifei, is a modern creation written and choreographed especially for Tamasaburō Bandō. It is a fusion of Kabuki dance and Peking opera with extra modern elements. Lyrics by the well-known contemporary author Yumemakura Baku. Takao is the name of a great courtesan. The dance is performed with Ogie-bushi style of music, designed for intimate surroundings of a private pleasure house. Orochi is based on the final act of a long puppet play written by Chikamatsu Monzaemon. Yūgiri is the name of a high ranking courtesan. Based on an older work from 18th century this version in Kiyomoto style was first performed in 1863. Kane ga Misaki was first performed by Nakamura Tomijuro I in 1759 as a version of the Kabuki dance "Kyōganoko musume Dōjōji."
