Noh dates from the 14th and 15th centuries, and its subject matter is taken mainly from Japan’s classical literature. Traditionally the players were all male, with the chorus playing a passive narrative role.
- What is most surprising in the film is Ono's voice, which not only mimics the whine of a fly in flight but also, according to Munroe, echoes the sound of the flute that punctuates every dramatic fluctuation in traditional Japanese Noh drama.
- In modern Japan, directors like Ninagawa and Suzuki have tapped the energies underlying theatrical traditions of Noh and Kabuki to make Shakespeare texts seem both contemporary and international.
- The Japanese Noh was a drama of soliloquy and reminiscence, rather than one of conflict, in which the actor's stylized movements and stamping provided a rhythmic accompaniment to his narrative, with subjects taken from myth and legend.
