Parsifal (Only 3 performances! Lifetime chance!)

As some of opera fans must have known, this year is the bicentennial of the composer, R.Wagner so whole world is celebrating this special year with his pieces.
The Korea National Opera is presenting the opera "Parsifal" in October.
Please see the link below, it tells you about Parsifal.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parsifal

This production is the very first "Parsifal" in Korea, the real premiere.
The Korea National Opera presents this opera only 3 times. After 3 times, it can't be guaranteed when it will be presented again. In particular, singers are really important for the opera and the cast for Parsifal is extraordinary.

Bass KwangChul Youn is the most favourite Wagner singer in the world these days. (I am so proud of him!!) He sings at all big opera houses over the world and Bayreuth loves him.
http://www.kwangchulyoun.info/
He sings as Gurnemanz and this role is his main repertoire at Bayreuth. In addition, because of an unfortunate accident, we had to replace singers of Parsifal and Kundry. Well, they are the MEGA STAR in the world opera scene, Christopher Ventris and Yvonne Naef. Other singers are also singing globally and they are getting many attentions from opera fans as wonderful Wagner singers.

Conductor : Lothar Zagrosek
Director / Set & Lighting Designer : Philippe Arlaud
Costume : Lenka Radecky
Cast : KwangChul Youn(Gurnemanz), Christopher Ventris(Parsifal), Yvonne Naef(Kundry), Gerard Kim(Amfortas)...

    Hey, guys! How was Parsifal?

    • Elizabeth D.

      I apologize for the late response, but I only got back to Osan after 10 PM last night. It was a truly long and enjoyable weekend which started off with the proverbial 'bang'! Parsifal was superb, as was the company! Karen and I really felt honoured to have had the opportunity to attend this unique production. Thumbs up for all the effort YOU put into it production and promotion-wise. Thanks again for making it possible for us to attend, and to all our new young friends for adding to the experience with your delightful company at dinner. All-in-all an evening to remember! xox

    Dear members who come to see the Parsifal.
    I am very happy to tell you guys that we'd got great reviews from the press and the audience. Tickets are all sold out and I must tell you that we were so lucky to book tickets early.

    I will pop into Belinni if I can.
    Please call me or text me when you arrive at the opera house.
    As I wrote you, I will be near the information desk on the ground floor(1st floor) where we sell program books. See you tomorrow (and Saturday, David)!!

    October 2, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      The performance starts from 4pm. Therefore, please make sure you arrive at least by 3:40pm. I will be at the lobby. You can see the "Ticket" and the desk where a program book is on sale. I will be near the desk. If you can't find me, please call me. See you tomorrow.

    Hi everyone~ I can't join the dinner, but I was wondering if anyone is interested in coffee after the opera?

    October 2, 2013

  • David F.

    I'll be there!

    October 2, 2013

  • David F.

    i'll call for sure

  • David F.

    Anyone going on Saturday?

    I feel like the shot-down swan.

    September 28, 2013

    • David F.

      yes indeed I will say "HI"!

      September 28, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      September 28, 2013

  • David F.

    I have a 30,000 won ticket for Saturday. Can I join the meal or any other group please?

    September 27, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      Oh! You bought the precious ticket! You know that all tickets are sold out. I think you should talk with Elizabeth.

      September 27, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      Oh, sorry. I didn't see "Saturday".

      September 28, 2013

  • Elizabeth D.

    I'm happy to report that I have just secured a reservation for dinner during the first intermission. I made a tentative reservation for a table for 8 people at Restoranté Bellini for 5:45 PM. I also arranged that we could place our food orders before the opera started in order to ensure that the restaurant could prepare our meals ahead of time. This way our food can be served soon after we arrive at the restaurant. This will to save time and we won't have to rush our meal.

    Anyone is welcome to join myself and Karen for dinner, but that I need to confirm numbers by Monday.

    Please feel free to call me on[masked] if you're interested. Look forward to meeting you!

    • SeungMi K.

      Thank you, Elisabeth. I also sent an email to our members, too.

    SeungMi, are there any more discounted "R" tickets available by any chance? I have a friend who might like to go.

    September 23, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      I am sorry. All tickets for 3rd and 5th are sold out.

      September 23, 2013

    • Greg

      I see. No worries, thanks.

      September 23, 2013

  • Eunji Y.

    Oh my godness! I read this posting now. Is the ticket still available?

    September 23, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      I am sorry. All tickets for 3rd and 5th are sold out.

      September 23, 2013

  • Elizabeth D.

    I was wondering if those attending would be interested in joining Karen and myself during the dinner break. If so, we could try to reserve a table at one of the restaurants on site. Not only will this avoid having to rush or stand in line, but it would also afford us the opportunity to meet

    Any takers?

    September 13, 2013

  • Elizabeth D.

    Hi SeungMi

    I'd like to make a reservation for myself for any of the better seats, as centrally- positioned as possible, if possible, please. It can be located either on the first balcony or wherever you think best.

    BTW, it would be great if I could be seated near by or together with any of the other attendees that have booked on this site given that I am coming there alone. If not, I don't mind being seated in the best possible spot by myself. Hopefully I can meet you and some members before or after the performance.

    Please advise if and when you've secured a seat for me and text me the price ASAP as I will be leaving for Jeju Isalnd early tomorrow morning and will only be back after the 2nd September.

    Thanks again for your kind efforts! I look forward to meeting you and everyone else. Elizabeth

    • SeungMi K.

      Good morning, Elizabeth. The bank transaction is checked but there was only one seat left in the middle section. Luckily, it was Row 11 but the seat is not 5 but 8. I booked it, though. Well, 1 hour dinner break doesn't mean the venue provides any food. It's just for the audience and singers because of this piece's long running time. You can buy kind of snack here. However, if you don't want to be in a line too long, it may be a good idea to bring your own sandwiches or something to eat.

      September 13, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      Oh, Elizabeth. I just found that I can't see your name on RSVP list. Could you please RSVP with 1 guest?

      September 13, 2013

  • Greg

    Hello SeungMi! I'm happy to have found your group. :)

    Are there any tickets still available for Parsifal?

    September 5, 2013

    • SeungMi K.

      Checked!!! Booked!! Section B Row-11 Seat-12
