NOBUNAGA ( 信長 ) : The Will to Power, Moon Troupe, 2016

Ryu Masaki’s final production before stepping down as Top Star of Moon Troupe was Nobunaga: The Will to Power/Forever Love (using the usual Takarazuka format of first act drama, second act revue).  I was lucky enough to see two performances in Tokyo just about a year ago and it’s taken almost that full year to understand what the hell was happening on stage.



(Those completely unfamiliar with the Takarazuka theater troupe may also want to read my introduction piece written after I first saw Takarazuka in 2015.)
