“Hagoromo” – An Invitation to a Mystical World

“Hagoromo” brings ancient legends to life on stage and symbolizes the elegance and mystique of Noh theater. Please enjoy the harmony of beautiful storytelling and dance on this special day.

“Hagoromo” Story Synopsis

One spring morning at Miho no Matsubara, a fisherman named Hakuryo discovers a splendid feather robe. Intending to treasure it, he is approached by a celestial maiden claiming it as hers, necessary for her return to the heavens. Initially reluctant, Hakuryo is moved by the maiden’s sorrow and agrees to return the robe on the condition of witnessing her dance.

Adorned in her feather robe, the maiden performs a breathtaking dance, representing the lunar palace and the springtime pine grove, captivating Hakuryo with its beauty. Upon completing her dance, the maiden ascends towards Mount Fuji, disappearing into the mist.

This tale imparts the splendor of the heavens and the marvels of nature. The celestial dance symbolizes peace and the vista of spring, offering dreams and hope to the audience. Hakuryo’s change of heart highlights the importance of kindness. This age-old story teaches us the significance of beauty and benevolence.
