Hamlet Cantabile was directed by Yo-sup Bae and performed by the Tuida Theater Company at the National Theater of Korea in Seoul on 18 May 2007.
Commentary about this performance:
Five clowns meet the ghost of dead Hamlet at his grave and hear his sad story. After that, they perform his story with puppets and musical instruments. Ironical, paradoxical, metaphorical – a burlesque parodied in the form of allegory. The clowns jeer at death, love, revenge, justice and anything that is serious; there is no tragedy.
Hwang Hye-ran, Choi Jae-young, Jung Hyun-suk, Kim Su-a, and Myeong Hyun-jin as the five clowns
Production designer – Kim Kyoung-ee
