Changgeuk with Peking opera, how much better can it be?
Peking opera of <farewell My concubine> reborn as Korean Changgeuk
<Farewell My Concubine> of the National Changgeuk Company of Korea that was praised with a standing ovation and requests for an encore will be screened as the first show of February of “ACC Wednesday Theater.”
After six months since it made its first performance at the National Theater of Korea in 2019, it was staged again in CJ Towol Theater of Seoul Arts Center, receiving an enthusiastic response from the audience and critics.
This performance is a combination of Peking opera that focuses on “visual expression” and Changgeuk that is centered on “auditory expression,” creating a majestic and beautiful storyline.

Changgeuk <Farewell My Concubine> is inspired by the original performance of the same title, conveying a love story of Xiang Yu, a national hero who commits suicide after being defeated in the Chu-Han War, and his wife Consort Yu. Kim Jun-su who played the role of Consort Yu was praised for dressing up as a woman (“Dan” of the original Peking opera). The fancy dresses designed by Tim Yip, the winner of the 73rd Academy Awards for Art Direction for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” are also fun to watch.
In the Spring and Autumn and Warring States period in China, King Huai promises the feudal lords that the first to enter Xianyang would become king.
Chu that had Xiang Yu, the god of war, advances from the north, and Han that was founded by Liu Bang from the south. Liu Bang takes over Xianyang first, but is defeated by Xiang Yu's army and put in crisis. Liu Bang goes to Xiang Yu to beg for his life, and Xiang Yu, as a good man, throws a banquet at Hongmen. Xiang Yu’s adviser Fan Zeng says to make a trap in the party to kill Liu Bang, but Xiang Yu ignores this advice, as it is not a fair play. Meanwhile, Liu Bang runs away and
defeats battles as he collects his mind and listens to strategist Zhang Liang. Xiang Yu’s lover Consort Yu sees Xiang Yu suffering in the war and dances a beautiful knife dance, hoping him to regain feet.
