Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) 2017 is bringing in a Korean musical production that boomed in Korea last year.
Trojan Women, a contemporary Asian Musical which incorporates both K-pop and a 400-year Korean genre of musical story telling pansori, will be staged beyond Korea for the first time.
Depicting a story of women in war that took placed in 1200BC, it is a reinvention of an old tale that illustrates “gripping power and cross-cultural beauty”.
Directed by SIFA Founding Festival Director, Ong Keng Sen, in collaboration with National Theatre of Korea, the music is composed by pansori singer Ms Anh Sook-sun and K-pop composer Jung Jae-II.
With dense historic stories and sounds that hold strong Korean culture, Trojan Women will take stage from 7 to 9 September at Victoria Theatre in Korean with English subtitles.
Tickets are available here, priced at $45, $65 and $85.
