Review by Catherine Lamm

PAN is the Korean word for festival and that aptly describes this production rich in music and dance.

The costumes are rich is colour and tradition. The dancing is immaculate; all the women dance as one. There are some solo performances both dance and song. And we get the requisite taiko drums.

The audience is first awed by the spectacle then the dance and then the music. It is a rich and opulent production with a huge cast that seems as comfortable with the dance as with the drums.

We are getting a big slice of Korean culture and history through this production.
