The pair also played the same roles in a production of 
Kama-ga-Fuchi Futatsu Domoe (釜渕双級巴) at the
Teikoku Gekij˘ in October 1928.  Given that 1928 appears
to be rather late for Hanayama print, it is possible that the
print reflects a prior performance outside of Tokyo.

OCTOBER

                 
Kataoka Nizaemon XI (片岡仁左衛門) as
ďboshi Yuranosuke (大星由良之助)

Note:  Nizaemon XI also performed this role in
Kanadehon Chűshingura at the Kabuki-za in April 1921.
Given that 1921 and 1928 appear to be rather early and late,
respectively, for a Hanayama print, it is possible that the
print reflects an intermediate  performance outside of Tokyo.
