Venue: Yein Hall of Sejong Center for the Performing Arts
As a researcher who effectively used the two chronological lists of operatic performances in Korea (50th anniversary and 60th anniversary), it is gratifying that the operatic field willingly and sincerely desires to make the updated lists.
Before I listened to this foundation ceremony, I had in mind that I would make another updated list, which includes the chronological lists of opera performances after 2007 to the present.
Since the making chronological list of operatic performances has not included in the multitude number of the national projects, it can be totally impossible unless some people take time out of their busy schedule to make it.
After the foundation ceremony, I had the meaningful conversation with the doyen of opera director, Kim Hong-Seung(김홍승) with an introduction by my friend, Soprano Jang Seung-Hee(장승희). From numerous episodes concerned with the opera directions to his own perspective on the opera direction…I asked my questions and learned many things. Since it was the unexpected conversation, I could not prepare for the interview, but I am mindful of the future.
