TRADITIONAL PERFORMANCE


LEE JA-RAM’S SACHEON-GA

The National Theater of Korea

July 7 and 8: An original work by pansori prodigy Lee Ja-ram, “Sacheon-ga” is an adaptation of Bertolt Brecht’s “The Good Person of Szechwan” in the form of pansori. Pansori is a traditional Korean form of narrative music performed by a singer who plays all the characters in the story and is accompanied by a drummer.

Lee is among the most prominent young Korean traditional musicians and has long been interested in mixing modernity with pansori. The performance of “Sacheon-ga” is therefore a combination of modern instruments and the long-established acting and resonance style of pansori.

Performances are at 4 p.m. on July 7 and 8.

Tickets cost 30,000 won.
