Opened in 2009, Myeongdong NANTA Theater is one of three stages of the famous Nanta show in Seoul. It is also the first permanent theater to showcase this non-verbal, Samul nori-style comic act. Since it is a visual gag, even if you don't know the language, you will laugh your hearts out at the antics of the actors. The story is about three cooks who are time-pressed to prepare a wedding a banquet. The whole cooking scenario is enacted through drumming, acrobatics, chopping and juggling. The audience is also involved in the enthralling show. If you want to catch a show, the Myeongdong NANTA Theater is indeed the best option with two shows during the week and three in the weekends.
Jeongdong Theater was the first modern theater of traditional vocal music and plays in Korea. It is home to the Traditional Performing Arts Series, which features dance and music, including Samulnori—a four-member drum and dancing group, and wind and string instrument concerts. Performances run from an hour to two hours. Japanese and English subtitles are provided. After the show, visitors are encouraged to join the performers on stage. Notably, this area in downtown Seoul was recently designated a cultural district. Reservations are necessary because there are only 400 seats there.
Located in the heart of Seoul, this center ranks among the top ten performing arts centers in the world. It stands six stories high with three basement levels. This performing arts center offers a place to enjoy top-quality performances at an international level. At night, floodlights illuminate the building, giving it a sense of beauty, romance and mystique. It is a popular venue for symphonies, concerts, operas, ballet, and Korean traditional folk performances. Exhibitions and international conventions are held here, too.
Founded in 1987, the Seoul Arts Center offers a host of facilities all housed in one functional complex. There is an opera house, music hall, art gallery, arts library, and a calligraphy hall. Performers and artists come from around the world to perform here. So, if highbrow culture is your cup of tea, then this would certainly be a good place to visit. A nearby park is a good place to sit down and relax either before or after a performance.
This city has no dearth of clubs, bars, music venue, and such places, but it is not often that you will find a place like D-Cube Art Center. This comprehensive venue is dedicated to preserving the arts and culture scene of the city, and provides its spaces just for this purpose. There is a 1242-seat theater and a 500-seat multi-purpose venue, which are used for this purpose.
