dbo:abstract
  • Yoshitsune Senbon-sakura (Yoshitsune et les mille cerisiers) (義経千本桜) est un grand classique du bunraku et du kabuki. Cette pièce a été écrite et jouée pour la première fois en 1747 à Osaka par la troupe de bunraku du Takemoto-za, puis reprise l'année suivante à Edo (Tokyo) par la troupe de kabuki du Nakamura-za. La pièce de marionnettes dure près de 2h30. Elle mêle plusieurs intrigues, principalement celle qui suit la femme et le fils de Taira no Koremori (général du clan Taira (Heike) défait et en fuite), et celle qui suit Yoshitsune (1159-1189) du clan Minamoto (Genji), poursuivi par les sbires à la solde de Yorimoto, son demi-frère et nouveau maître du pays.

  • Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura (義経千本桜), or Yoshitsune and the Thousand Cherry Trees, is a Japanese play, one of the three most popular and famous in the Kabuki repertoire. Originally written in 1747 for the jōruri puppet theater by Takeda Izumo II, Miyoshi Shōraku and Namiki Senryū I, it was adapted to kabuki the following year. Adapted to Kabuki, the play premiered in that mode in January 1748, in the city of Ise, in Mie Prefecture. Kataoka Nizaemon IV and Yamamoto Koheiji were two of the actors in this performance, playing Ginpei and Tadanobu/Genkurō respectively. The premiere in Edo was held at the Nakamura-za in May the same year, and in Osaka at the Naka no Shibai just a few months later in August. The play is derived from the sekai of the Heike Monogatari, a classical epic which details the rise and fall of the Taira clan of samurai. The latter portions describe the eventual defeat of the Taira in the Genpei War (1180–85), at the hands of the Minamoto clan, led by Minamoto no Yoshitsune, the title character of this play. Yoshitsune takes place a few years after the end of the Genpei War. Minamoto no Yoshitsune, the famous general, is being pursued by agents of his brother, Minamoto no Yoritomo, who has recently established himself as Shogun. Yoshitsune travels with his mistress Shizuka and loyal retainer Benkei in search of three Taira generals who escaped justice at the end of the war, and who he believes may pose a threat to the shogunate. This aspect of the plot is the primary departure from both history and from the epic. In reality, the three generals Taira no Koremori, Taira no Tomomori, and Taira no Noritsune, along with the young Emperor Antoku and his nursemaid who feature in the play, all perished in the war, most of them sacrificing themselves in the battle of Dan-no-ura.
