Sunday: World-famous tenor Andrea Bocelli is coming to Korea during his world tour. He is famous for not only his lyrical representation of songs but also for mixing classical and pop music as a first-generation popera performer.

This will be his third concert in Korea and his first visit in six years. He will be performing tracks from his latest album, “Cinema,” with maestro Eugene Kohn and the Prime Philharmonic Orchestra.

The show starts at 7 p.m.

Tickets range from 115,000 won ($100) to 290,000 won.

After entering high school, he developed an interest in jazz and New Age music, and has been attracting audiences since then.
