Explore Japan’s time-honored noh theater in a rare double bill that offers plays from the modern and traditional repertories. The evening features the poignant new play Holy Mother in Nagasaki, in which a pilgrim learns about the legend of a woman, surmised to have been the Virgin Mary, who appeared to console the victims of the atomic bomb. Kiyotsune, one of Zeami’s (1363?-1443?) masterpieces, is offered as a companion piece. This centuries-old noh play tells the story of a grieving widow who meets her warrior husband in a dream to learn of his final battle. Performed in Japanese with English subtitles.
Led by noh actor Kanji Shimizu; Featuring members of the Church of St. Francis Xavier Choir, New York; Presented in assistance with Tessen-kai Noh Theater Association.
At 6:30 pm each night there will be a Pre-Performance Lecture led by Dr. Tom Hare, Professor of Comparative Literature at Princeton University. Free and open to ticket holders only.
