The sudden death of Mr.Kanzaburo
I was very surprised with the news about Mr.Kanzaburo last week. One of the leading Kabuki actors died on December 5th in Tokyo for the cause of respiratory failure.(呼吸器疾患) He had been treated for esophageal cancer.(食道がん) Nakamura Kanzaburo XVIII was 57 years old, but I'd say he died early, because he couldn't show us his more mature performance with age.
He played Kabuki in NewYork in 2004 and 2007. According to the New York Times, Mr.Kanzaburo insisted that his effort to broaden Kabuki’s appeal took the theater back to its rough-and-tumble roots in the 17th century. He was a bold but sensible actor, that’s why a great number of Kabuki fans cannot help loving his play and character. We expected Mr.Kanzaburo would act on the new stage of Kabuki-za theater next spring. We all miss him.
