Mugen Noh Othello


Following a sold-out run of Medea in 2011, Satoshi Miyagi and his company SPAC return to New York with another literary masterpiece, Othello. Miyagi re-tells Shakespeare’s famed tragedy through noh theater’s most distinct storytelling structure, mugen noh, or a play that features a spirit. Told from the perspective of Othello’s wife Desdemona, who returns as a ghost after her death, Miyagi’s production is replete with stunning masks and costumes as well as powerful live music and chanting. Performed in Japanese with English titles.

Part of the NOH-NOW Series
Following the much acclaimed NOH-NOW performance series that Japan Society presented during our 2007 centennial celebration, we are proud to showcase a new NOH-NOW series to mark our 110th anniversary. This edition offers four new productions by today's most celebrated artists who continue to draw inspiration from Japan's centuries-old noh tradition.
