Japan theatre No performs in the Mariinsky theatre
03.15.2004 19:27

No In the playbill are the best things from the classical repertoire of No and Kegan theatres : "Sumidagava" and "Khakama for two" (27 March), "Funabankey" and "Two Daim” (28 March).

No or Nogaku as well as Bunraku and Kabuki is one of the most important types of the Japan classical theatre art. Originally, No theatre has developed as one of the types of folk art and then, it has gradually become professional. Its first performances No organised on the religious holidays in the monasteries and castles of tycoons who took the theatre under their patronage.

By the end of the XIVth century two outstanding theatrical figures of Japan, Kannjami and his son Zeami worked out artistic and aesthetic principles of the No theatre. Art of No combines the elements of dance, drama, music and poesy and takes an important place in the classical culture of Japan.

All performers are men. Actors coming out as women often wear masks and do not use falsetto that creates a special unique impression.
