Notes

Title devised by cataloguer.

Takarazuka Shojo Kagekidan, which is the predecessor of Takarazuka Kagekidan is a Japanese all-female musical theatre troupe based in Takarazuka, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. The Takarazuka Shojo Kagekidan had its first performance in 1914 and gained wider public recognition in 1919. It became popular and had an increasing number of public performances in major cities in Japan such as Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya and Tokyo. In 1927, after Director Ryusei Kishida came back from the U.S., “Mon Paris” western-inspired theatre, was opened. Since then, the performances were adapted from the western musicals and films as well as the Japanese folktales. Takarazuka Kagekidan, to date, mobilises 2.5 million audiences in each year.
