The Kabuki-za theatre in Ginza, Tokyo

Home again at last, after a week in which I spent 36 hours in the air (Singapore-London-Tokyo-London). I was giving a seminar for ballet pianists at the remarkable Showa University in Tokyo, one of the highlights being the young star violinist who’d agreed to play for the bit of the seminar where I wanted someone to illustrate the effect of violin accompaniment for ballet, just like mother made it.

On Sunday night, on the recommendation of a colleague in Tokyo, I went to the Kabuki-za theatre (ably assisted by my translator Fumiko),  to catch a performance before the theatre closes for renovation (rebuilding) next May.  Extraordinary stuff.
