EDUCATION HIGHLIGHTS

Enjoy an evening with The Shining Prince on Stage: Inaka Genji in Kabuki Plays and Prints on April 17, 2014, a lecture by Sarah E. Thompson, Assistant Curator for Japanese Prints of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The Tale of Genji, Japan's great literary classic, was a popular subject for woodblock prints and inspired the bestseller, False Murasaki's Rustic Genji, which was dramatized for the kabuki stage. This talk explores the complex interaction between books, plays, and prints. Click here to purchase your tickets.
