Hello Emilio. What an interesting print. Yes, the actor is Uzaemon XII in 3 roles, but they are all dances. This was a 'hengemono' dance based on different acts of the play 'Chushingura' and therefore given the same title. But it was performed from the 16th day of the 3rd month, 1847, not the 2nd month. The roles are (from the top): Rikiya, Kago-kaki (a palanquin bearer), and Echigo Jishi (the lion dancer from Echigo Province).
