Hagoromo (Feathered Mantle) is one of the most popular Noh plays in the Noh repertoire. The central figure is a celestial maiden who appears by a row of pine trees at Miho Beach to teach a lesson of compassion to a fisherman. You will also be introduced to vocal techniques utilized in Noh.

Hagoromo was an inspiration for “This Lingering Life,” a new play by Chiori Miyagawa premiering at San Francisco’s Z Space in June. The screening is part of a series presenting 4 classic Noh plays that inspired “This Lingering Life.” For more information about the series, visit: http://www.theatreofyugen.org/?spec=137
