for its strikingly visual productions and unique one-person-per-puppet
style, this renowned all-female company has been dazzling audiences for
nearly a century. Otome Bunraku presents two timeless classics, The
Miracle at Tsubosaka and Yoshitsune and One Thousand Cherry Blossom
Trees, set to live music: a tender love story about a blind husband
and his devoted wife and the epic tale of a legendary general, complete
with dynamic battle scenes. In Japanese with simultaneous English translation.
There will be a lecture demonstration one hour prior to curtain.
