Description

This study on how the Noh tradition in Japan has influenced Shakespearean performances around the world is based on two world-renowned works: Ernest Fenollosa's excellent translation of chief Noh works and Benjamin Britten's masterpiece operatic work, "Curlew River", remaking another masterpiece Noh play. These works attached some crucial effects upon Shakespearean performance, so much so that another memorable dimension has been added, which is theatrum mundi or the theatre of the world.
