Comments - Interesting kabuki portrait of Nakamura Shikan IV as the commoner Otaka Tonomo in "Tsukimi no Hare Meiga no Ichijiku" at the Ichimura Theater. He kneels on a wooden boardwalk over a pond filled with blossoming irises, clutching a letter in one hand and iris leaves in the other, grimacing angrily. An expressive figure in an attractive setting, detailed with soft shading on the water and sky.
