Onoe Kikugoro VI (1885-1949) is regarded by many as the most important Kabuki actor in the first half of the 20th century. A Master of both male and female roles he was held in high regard even during his life-time as an innovator of both the style and the content of Kabuki. This book was published shortly after his death and depicts some of his most memorable performances (for example as Masuroku in 'Tobae', as Bentenkozo in 'Benten musume', and as Hanako in 'Musume dojoji') as well as showing him back-stage. The second edition was published only a month after the first and is identical in format. Only three copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
