    Introduction to Kabuki
     The summer months at the National Theatre feature special performances of Kabuki to introduce this traditional art to students. The program always includes a friendly introductory lecture hosted by one of the young stars and performances by top-rate actors. If you have never seen Kabuki, this may be a perfect opportunity. For the time and the price and the quality of the performance, this can't be beat!
