YANONE 矢の根(the Arrowhead), the first piece is one of the eighteen kABUKI 歌舞伎 plays and a historical piece done in the flashy, exaggerated aragoto style and was first performed in 1729. Based on the story of two samurai brothers, Soga no Goro Tokimune and Soga no Juro Sukenari who for 18 years seek revenge for the murder of their father, Suketsune, who after murdering their father has risen in rank to become a councilor to Shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo (1147-1199).
The second piece,FUJIMUSUME 藤娘(the Wisteria Maiden,), dates back to 1826 and is a dance piece featuring a painting of a wisteria sprite who becomes so infatuated with a young male passerby that she comes to life. Alas, her love goes unrequited and she returns to the painting.
