Comment Noh is a traditional form of classical Japanese musical theater that has been performed since the 14th century.

Most characters are masked, men playing male and female roles. Noh performance is extremely codified, and regulated by a traditional head master along with an elaborate hierarchical system, with an emphasis on preserving traditional Noh acting & style rather than innovation.
