ACF 933: The Korea Society to present p'ansori master BAE Il-dong

Bae Il-dong

Contemplative Traditions Music Series: P’ungnyu in P’ansori

When: Friday, March 25th, 2010 at 6:30PM
Where: The Korea Society, 950 3rd Avenue at 57th Street
Entrance on 57th, the South-West corner of the intersection

On March 25, The Korea Society of New York will proudly host p’ansori master Bae Il-dong. He presents a program of p’ungnyu, enthralling listeners with his stunning control of drama, narrative, melody, and rhythm. Bae performs Korea's beloved tale of Chunhyang ga, one of the five most popular epic narratives that form the p’ansori canon.

The Chunhyang ga tells the story of love between Chunhyang, the daughter of a kiseng, and Yi Mongryong, the son of a magistrate. After the two are illegally married, Mongryong goes to Hanyang (Seoul) to pass the state examination to become a court official. Mr. Bae Il-dong will sing of Yi Mongryong’s return to Namwon as well as his re-encounter with his mother-in-law, Wolmae.

Kim Dong-won

Noted professor Kim Dong-won, who has been part of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, speaks on p’ungnyu and Bae Il-dong’s performance during and at the conclusion of the event. Traditional teas and sweets are offered throughout this special hour of contemplative music, commentary and Q&A.
