Sado Takigi Noh Performance


Sado Takigi Noh Theatre is an annual favourite that will continue its tradition in 2015. Sado Island has a long history of Noh theater: Zeami, who is credited for perfecting the art form, was exiled to Sado Island, and the first magistrate on Sado was formerly a Noh performer. These days, Sado Island is still home to one third of Japan’s Noh stages. Nowadays one can experience more variety of Noh schools and performance styles on Sado than anywhere else in Japan. We hope you will come and experience Noh by firelight at one of these summer performances.
