Noh TriviaQuestion and Answer

Question10 Is hand clapping necessary for Noh programs?

Watching a Noh play is like dreaming; it starts and ends without any clear signs. Thus there are not a few fans that prefer not to clap their hands at the end of a show in order to avoid spoiling an aftertaste. It is important to have good manners when we appreciate art; however, many people say we should not completely forbid hand clapping if it is done to express excitement. But we have to refrain from clapping our hands at the end of a tragedy.

We should also remember that a show is not over if someone is on stage. Hand clapping is not necessary for every time of the exits of the leading player, the supporting player, or the singers.
