A JOINT opera with alumni of Col. of Music, "The
Magic Flute (Die Zauberflute)" was performed at the Seoul Arts Center from May
13 to 16, celebrating both the Yonsei 120th anniversary and 50th Anniversary of
Col. of Music.
This event was especially meaningful that Yonsei had
introduced this "The Magic Flute" to Korea for the first time in 1973. Before
the performance, this opera attracted public attention by the fact that it cast
world famous actors and vocalists who graduated from the Col. of Music, Yonsei
Univ. Not only these graduates but also undergraduate students of the college
appeared on the stage together.
Recording high seat share, "Magic Flute" has
come to an end successfully. However, it was criticized that it had no
consideration about foreigners. There was only Korean subtitle of the play and
it was even awkward translation.
