Noh TriviaQuestion and Answer

Question1 1 How long will "new pieces" remain new?

In the history of seven hundred years, so many pieces have come into the Noh world. However, we have some two hundred principal pieces inherited, most of which were narrowed down by the schools by the time of the Edo era.

We call the Noh plays created in and after the Meiji era "new pieces". The new pieces will be called "new" for some ages even they are performed for a long time, unless they will go through so many ages, or the schools will rearrange their repertories on a large scale.
