"Japanese no theatre is one of the great achievements of civilisation ... no art is more sophisticated than this intricate fusion of music, dance, mask, costume and language". So writes Royall Tyler in his introduction to this generous collection of 24 plays. The no theatre achieved its classic form in the 15C, largely through the genius of the dramatist Zeami (1363-1443). Each play is accompanied by full notes and stage directions and includes an intro that draws on current Japanese scholarship
