Personal Collection (#8//80)

Note: This appears to have been Danjűr˘ XII's only known appearance in
this role during the time that Binnie lived in Japan prior to the creation of
this print.  Otherwise, Danjűr˘ XII's most recent performance as Sukeroku
in Tokyo appears to have been at the Kabuki-za in May 1992.  Danjűr˘ XII
also performed the role at the Kabuki-za in January 1988 and in April and
June 1985 and, as Ichikawa Ebiz˘ X, performed the role  multiple times as
far back as November 1969.  This print is likely based on a broadcast
recording of one of these prior performances.
