"Enjoy the beauty, drama, pathos and splendor of KABUKI in this presentation of Japan's archetypical revenge story."
The first-ever production of this kabuki play by a university in the continental United States will be a PSU main-stage theater production in Lincoln Performance Hall, under the direction of Professor Laurence Kominz. It will feature a large company of student performers and several experts in Japanese music, dance, and costuming from outside the university. PSU stage design faculty will lead student teams in using lighting, projection, and construction materials to create the sets for nine separate scenes. Dr. Wynn Kiyama, Executive Director of Portland Taiko, with an affiliation with the PSU School of Music, is the Musical Director.
