Nat’l Ballet Goes Global for New Year
By Kim Ju-young for The Korea Times
The ``Special Gala for 2003’’ by the Korea National Ballet at 7 p.m. on Jan. 11 at the Haeoreum
Theater (Main Hall) of the National Theater of Korea in downtown Seoul opens the new year with an
opportunity to take in a variety of local and international performances in one place at one
time, a kind of whirlwind trip across the dance spectrum for ballet-goers.
This one-night treat, a two-part program, starts with the classic ``Swan Lake’’ performed by Kim
Seh-yun from the Universal Ballet and Stanislav Belyaevsky from the National Ballet of Finland.
Following this is ``The Talisman,’’ danced by members of the Korea National Ballet, then
``Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux’’ will feature Hong Jeong-min and Lee Won-chol, two principal dancers
from the Korea National Ballet. click for more
