“Kabuki is a highly stylized and formal type of Japanese theater. It was started as a dance form in 1603 by a female temple servant. The present form of theater prohibits women from participating and as a result, men take all the parts, portraying women by the use of masks and makeup. The plays are performed to the accompaniment of traditional music, especially that of the samisen. The Kabuki plays are presented on revolving stages, with scene and costume changes taking place in front of the viewers.”
