The Timeless Tragedy
Noh play “Sumidagawa”

One of the masterpieces of Noh play, “Sumidagawa”, was created by Motomasa, the eldest son of Zeami, who is said to be the Father of Noh play. The story was adapted into an opera entitled “Curlew River” by the British composer, Edward Benjamin Britten, Baron Britten, and widely performed in various countries. This time, we focus on its dramatic maturity as well as Nenbutsu/Buddhist mantra which cradles sorrow. A hands-on program featuring Nenbutsu/Buddhist mantra is offered. It aims to help foreign audiences to feel and understand the true significance of Japanese culture.
