Troy may be defeated, but never forgotten – and its women endure as survivors amid the aftermath of a ten-year war with the Greeks.
Ong Keng Sen’s epic paints the parallels between the trauma and wrath faced by the Trojan Women and the pain Korean women have lived through across decades of war and division. Through the waves of the pansori music, the women make this story their own, celebrating the importance of female solidarity in the face of adversity through music and movement.
I find this is a tricky show to review. Since leaving the auditorium, I’ve been trying to reconcile myself with very polarising aspects of this production.

Daniel Kramer’s first season at the English National Opera (ENO) was always going to be bold, and it feels as though the ENO are a perfect fit for Kramer and his vision for the company.
At his introduction to the season on 1st May, Kramer came from a day of press interviews as enthusiastic and passionate about his debut season as ever, and what a season it promises to be. The newly announced 2018/19 season brings five new productions and four revivals to the stage of the London Coliseum, where the ENO are celebrating 50 years of residency this year.

A while ago, in a response to a tweet about my wife driving her warship, somebody made a comment about women drivers. This is my wife berthing her ship between a container ship and a destroyer. No tankers, no fuss, not easy (video speeded up for ease). Retweeted by Trendfem.com🌸🎶
