Takarazuka Revue is an all-female musical theatre company that celebrated its 100th anniversary this year. Highly prolific, Takarazuka has five different troupes that perform new works and classics, such as Phantom of the Opera and Gone with the Wind. While Takarazuka is far less known internationally than traditional theatre genres such as Noh and Kabuki, it consistently attracts more patrons than any other form of theatre in Japan.

Presented by academic Dr Leonie Stickland, this talk will offer a rare glimpse into ‘The Allure of Gender-bending Musical Theatre’.

This is the final talk in a five-part lecture series titled Noh to Now: Traditions and Counter-traditions in Japanese Performance, programmed and presented by The Japan Foundation, Sydney in conjunction with the Art Gallery NSW’s Theatre of dreams, theatre of play: nō and kyōgen in Japan exhibition.
