"Noh (能, Nō ), or Nōgaku (能楽) is a major form of classic Japanese musical drama that has been performed since the 14th century. Many characters are masked, with men playing both the male and female roles. The repertoire is normally limited to a specific set of historical plays. A Noh performance often lasts all day and consists of five Noh plays interspersed with shorter, humorous kyōgen pieces."japanese theater is truly amazing! if you've never seen how they dress and perform, you should really check it out - you're in for some really inspirational stuff.
