Conrad Prebys Concert Hall

Free


Chan E. Park presents bilingually and in the style of Korean p'ansori storysinging Song of the Underwater Palace, the classic allegory of the human politics of hegemony and survival. The Dragon King of the Underwater Palace is gravely ill and needs the liver of a hare for cure, and it is Turtle who volunteers to journey to the land to fetch one. On land, Turtle finds a hare and lures him to the Underwater Palace. Upon arrival, realizing he is about to be cut open, Hare fools the Dragon King that he left his liver in his home in the mountain. Dragon King orders Turtle to take Hare back for his liver. Back on land, Hare celebrates his survival, for now.
