1ST D CLASSIC: WERTHER

Seoul Arts Center, CJ Towol Theater

Friday and Saturday: The “D Classic” series is a dance project dedicated to taking classic masterpieces and reinterpreting them as dance pieces.

The dance production aims to use the sorrows of the young protagonist, Werther, as the focal point of the piece, aiming to convey the magnitude of his turbulent emotion through bodily movements and gestures.

The featured ballerinas have all appeared in Mnet’s competitive show, “Dancing 9,” including Season 1 MVP Ha Hui-dong.

The show starts at 8 p.m. on Friday and 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Tickets range from 40,000 won ($35) to 80,000 won.
