The Revenge of the 47 Loyal Samurai opens February 25 at Portland State University

Chushingura, a beloved kabuki play also known as The Revenge of the 47 Loyal Samurai, begins showings on February 25 in downtown Portland. The production of the archetypical tale of revenge is being presented by Portland State University (PSU) for the first time by a university in the continental United States.

The presentation features a large company of student performers as well as several experts in Japanese music, dance, and costuming from outside the university. PSU stage design faculty are also leading student teams in using lighting, projection, and construction materials to create sets for nine separate scenes.

Musical direction for the play is provided by Wynn Kiyama, executive director of Portland Taiko and an assistant professor at PSU, and Laurence Kominz, a PSU professor of Japanese, is the director.

The Revenge of the 47 Loyal Samurai is playing at Lincoln Performance Hall (1620 S.W. Park Avenue, Room 75) on the Portland State University campus. Performances are held at 7:30pm February 25 through 27 and March 2 through 5. A 2:00pm matinee takes place on February 28.
