It was ten years last year since we lost YAMAMOTO KIYOKAZU, our beloved playwright and director. This year we pick up his work and inspect and think over his view as ‘ theater of common mass’ once again. Theater RAKU, well-known as a unique senior theater, whose outstanding performances have attracted and been loved by many people both in Japan and abroad, perform Yamamoto’s Midsummer Night Dream ( the original by Shakespeare ). You will enjoy Asakusa Opera Oldies, nursery rhymes, lullabies, popular songs and also our original music.
