Last weekend, my wife and I attended a show at the Meijiza Theater in Chuo-ku, Tokyo.
This theater opened in 1873 and was converted into a modern one, equipped with the latest technology in 1993 with over 1,350 seats.
It was a 2 part show, the star was Taichi Saotome, a young man who gained some fame dressed and dancing as an onnagata. Part 1 was a play with some singing and a lot of sword fighting, while Part 2 was a dance musical.
Below is a video from YouTube with an amazing performance by Taichi Saotome, yup that’s a man!
