Noh is the theatrical art originated from the medieval period of Japan. Full of intrigue and mystery, it features rhythmic musicians, choral chanters, and masked actors as they tell the stories handed down over generations.
Master Motonori Umewaka of the Kanze school of Noh will perform two works, Hagoromo and Mayflower.
In addition to these plays, the evening will include Kagami Biraki, which is a ceremony that includes the opening of a cask of sake barrel.
