US Premiere

National Changgeuk Company of Korea
Conceived and Directed by Ong Keng Sen

BAM DEBUT

 

The beloved ancient Korean musical storytelling form of pansori fuses with K-pop and Greek tragedy in an incredible production from the National Theater of Korea and visionary Singaporean director Ong Keng Sen. K-pop producer and Parasite composer Jung Jae-il created the original music in collaboration with renowned pansori master Ahn Sook-sun, a Living National Treasure in South Korea. Set after the sacking of Troy, Trojan Women sweeps audiences up in the heartbreak and determination of the city’s female survivors. Through a whirlwind of music, dance, and theater—brought to life by over 25 singers, actors, and musicians—emerges a stunning portrait of resilience in the face of war and occupation.

After sold-out runs at the National Theater of Korea in Seoul and Singapore International Arts Festival followed by acclaimed runs in London, Amsterdam and Vienna, Trojan Women finally comes to BAM for its US debut.
