Pansori tells traditional folktales in song to a drum accompaniment and is a key part of Korean heritage dating from the 17th century. Heungboga, the story of a poor but good man with many children, is the third in the series of five stories retold in a modern context by Korean composer Chan Hae Lee and performed by Eun Young Kim, one of the leading young Korean exponents of pansori. Using a mixture of traditional and contemporary language, with an expanded ensemble including large percussion forces, this colourful and dramatic presentation was a huge success at its televised premiere at Seoul’s National Theatre.
