THEATER

CARMEN - THE MUSICAL

While the basics of the story are the same - a successful young Spanish police officer, Jose, falls in love with a beautiful gypsy girl, Carmen, only to find their love threatened by a jealous suitor - this version is set in a modern-day circus and features plenty of thrilling stunts and impressive visuals.

The Korean version stars Cha Ji-hyun, Ryu Jung-han and Shin Sung-rok.

The musical also grabbed the spotlight for its cast, which includes Seo-hyun of Girls’ Generation, Kyu-hyun of Super Junior and musical actor Kim Da-hyun. Because the story is already quite familiar to Korean audiences, the musical focuses more on the set, clothing, lighting and choreography.

The musical starts on Wednesday at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Friday at 8 p.m.; Saturday at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Sunday at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. No show on Thursday.
