"Noh drama incorporates folk-tales, poetry, and dance in an exquisite, very formalized setting. These works are of interest beyond their artistic appeal, because they are interwoven with Buddhist (and to a lesser extent, Shinto) traditions and beliefs, and provide deep insight into Japanese culture." (Quote from sacred-texts.com)
