  • Performances in May for the Entire Family

    SMG 2106
  • May is family month in Korea. As such, it is packed with a wide variety of fun and interesting performances for families.

    During the month of May, the Sejong Center offers a dance drama, classical music and musicals for the entire family to enjoy according to the age of each family member. Dancing Scarecrow, a comic dance drama, and Wow! Classical Ensemble, a classical performance presented like a fairytale, are classics that have been loved over many years, perfect for watching with children.

    Secret Envoy, an original Korean musical that talks about the Hague emissary, and classical music concert by Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France conducted by Music Director Mikko Frank are also much anticipated performances. If you are interested in pets and plants, we also recommend the Painting, Companion, Communication exhibition held at the Sejong Museum of Art in the Sejong Center.

    Alternatively, you can also enjoy traditional Korean music. Jami is a lunch concert held at the Samcheonggak Pavilion from April 5 to June 30 on Wednesdays and Fridays that combines performance with traditional Korean food. Sejong Music Tour is a court music performance that will be held at the Sejong Grand Theater in the Sejong Center on May 15.

    If you want to enjoy good music with a large group of people, try May, Play at Dream Forest at the Dream Forest Art Center or enjoy gugak for 5,000 won at the Pre & Free series held at Seoul Donhwamun Traditional Theater.

    The Sejong Center offers a discount of 25%-55% for children or when six or more family members purchase tickets together. Check out the prices on the Sejong Center website (www.sejongpac.or.kr).
