The onnagata is the flower of Kabuki, and although the great elders are essential in this field, if there were no young actors, none of these flowers in bud, kabuki would not survive.

There is much that is remarkable about this volume. Its roots date back to an international conference on Shakespeare and kabuki with the theme 'Traditions of Cross-dressing and Cross-gender Casting', held near Kobe, Japan, in August 1995. In January of that year Kobe had suffered a major earthquake resulting in significant loss of life and great damage to the infrastructure. At last, it is now possible to publish most of the papers that were presented at the Kobe conference (together with some additional contributions), which have been edited, and where necessary, revised for publication; and though so long delayed, the essays continue to represent key areas of research by some of the world's most distinguished scholars in their fields. The topics addressed include feminism, transvestism, cross-dressing, cross-gender casting, Elizabethan boy actors and kabuki onnagata. Importantly, the volume also contains a full transcription of the Open Forum session which concluded the conference, providing the reader with a quality debate on the main issues. Also included is a plate section featuring images from the 1991 London staging of an 1886 kabuki version of Hamlet, directed by Koji Orita, today Artistic Director of Japan's National Theatre, along with Orita's original presentation on the staging of his kabuki Hamlet, with an introductory commentary by Scott Johnson.
