Marrying traditional Japanese theatre, Kabuki, with Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, celebrated Japanese director, Yukio Ninagawa creates a visionary new production.
Working for the first time with two of Kabuki’s greatest performers, Onoe Kikugoro VII and his son Onoe Kikunosuke V, Ninagawa relocates Shakespeare’s well-loved comedy to a fantastical and colourful world set in Japan’s historical past.
Ticket sales are brisk.
