il tenore, inspired by a true story, depicts the unlikely production of Korea’s first opera, in the brief window of time between the Japanese occupation and the Korean War.

The show was commissioned in 2018 by the Wooran Foundation, and had a reading on December 3rd, 2018. It was subsequently picked up for production by CJ Entertainment.
