ABSTRACT

The topic in this study is about the character of Chunhyang in the Chinese Yue opera Chunxiangzhuan(1954). In order to approach the subject, need to understand both various versions of Chunhyangjeon and the original work that influenced the Yue opera Chunxiangzhuan. Yue opera Chunxiangzhuan is an remake of the script of the North’s National Classical Arts Theater. At a similar time, Cho Un(1900~?) and Park Taewon(1910~1986) arranged the Chunhyangjeon in Changgeuk. In North Korea, Changgeuk Chunhyangjeon was performed in December 1954 with a major revision by Jo Un and Park Taewon. The Yue Oprea of Chunxiangzhuan is not an translation of Changgeuk Chunhyangjeon. However, the timing of the production is close, the composition and title of the act and scene is almost identical, and considerable similarities can be found in contents and stage direction. The purpose of this study is to examine the similarities and differences between the two works, focusing on the character of the Chunhyang, and to identify the causes of the two works.
