About This Show

The Japan Society of Boston presents The First Noh & Kyogen Program Witnessed by Americans. The highlight of the program will be the classic “The Earth Spider” depicting the battle of noble warriors trying to subdue a terrible Nature
demon. Other features of the program will be an excerpt from the Noh play,
“Mochizuki,” and the comic Kyogen play, “Trapping the Fox.” This program,
rarely performed in Japan today, will give American audiences special
insight into several of the greatest classics of the Noh tradition. Lead
performer Umewaka Rokuro will be joined by a troupe of more than twenty of
the finest Noh actors and musicians active on the Japanese stage today.
