Covers the most important scenes of one of the greatest works in all Japanese theater. Based on a true story of revenge more widely known as the "Tale of the 47 Ronin." A provincial lord (daimyō) named Asano Naganori was entrusted with the reception of an imperial envoy. He sought guidance in this matter from a more senior lord named Kira Yoshinaka, but he failed to provide the 'gifts' that were expected in such a situation. Kira was therefore displeased with Asano and taunted him, making him draw his sword inside the shogun's palace. The Shogun was so outraged by this act that he ordered Asano to commit seppuku (suicide by ritual disembowelment) and confiscated all his lands

"The dance-drama Seki no To, 'The Snowbound Barrier', was first performed in 1784 at Edo's Kiri-za theatre ... It is an important example of the grand, flamboyant style typical of the Tenmei era of the 1780s ... One vital characteristic of the dance is its frequent allusion to, and sometimes witty parody of, classical literature."--Guide
