handbill [Ivanov / Oedipus Rex]

The time is finally ripe, and Suzuki Tadashi, the internationally renowned dramaturge, theorist and performing arts educator, at last brings his work to the New National Theatre, Tokyo for a historic series of performances of world masterpieces entitled "On the Dramatic Passion." Three plays will rotate between Playhouse and The Pit of New National Theatre, Tokyo: Cyrano de Bergerac, Ivanov and Oedipus Rex, shedding fresh light on their fundamental themes through Suzuki's keen insight into the essence of their narratives. With Oidipous played by a German actor, and the part of Roxanne in Cyrano to be given to an unknown heroine chosen in competitive auditions, this series promises to bring an innovative and intense theatrical experience to the stage of the New National Theatre, Tokyo.
