~ You’re Invited! ~
In honor of the 100th anniversary of the March 1st Movement, we invite you to "Spring Spring," the first ever Korean opera performance.
<Performance Details and Special Guests>
Based on a novel of the same name, "Spring Spring” integrates both Western and Korean music to tell a story of people’s daily lives in the impoverished countryside. The opera humorously weaves together two narratives: the comical conflicts between a greedy future father-in-law and his foolish son-in-law, and the homely yet sweet love story of a rural couple.
“Spring Spring” has received much praise for moving the hearts of international audiences while managing to capture the distinct, powerful themes of Korean culture.The music director of the opera, Hyun-Ji Yoon, also plays the female protagonist. Yoon graduated from the Manhattan College of Music and Ewha Womans University with a Masters degree in the Arts. The extremely talented vocalist has won both the New York International Vocal Competition and the San Diego Artists Vocal Competition. Joining her in the opera are numerous Korean-American vocalists currently active in the community as well as the Atlanta Philharmonic Orchestra.
