There was a free Bunraku performance on Saturday. I took my son to see it. My first clue that we might not love it was when we stepped into the auditorium and 90% of the audience was elderly.
So anyway, it began. The puppets were absolutely beautiful. For thirty minutes we watched a girl puppet and boy puppet sing to one another. Then my son and I snuck out. (There was another exhibit on computers that we really wanted to get to.)
The bunraku performance ended up lasting two hours and a half. So I am kind of glad we did not stay. We saw enough to see what it was like, and that was good.
