A Revival of the Glory of Mozart?
Xiah Junsu will hold the ‘Kim Jun Soo Musical Concert’ at the Olympic Sports Stadium for four days, starting from October 7th.
With a special request from Grammy Award winning, world renowned composer Sylvester Levay, the concert has been planned with Kim Junsu as the main character to show the highlights of ‘Mozart!’ as well as the Austrian musical ‘Elizabeth’, which will debut in Korea in 2012.
Composer Levay will fly in to Korea in September for the concert and will bring with him a song composed especially for Xiah Junsu to perform at this concert.
Levay is planning to join Kim Junsu on stage for this piece and it was found that Levay holds great affection for the singer as he even found and watched all of Kim Junsu’s past performances as part of the group TVXQ.
Kim Junsu, who is preparing for his first musical concert, stated, “I was able to play a special role in Mozart, and found myself falling for the charm of the new genre of music I encountered,” and “We will be introducing Composer Levay’s famous production ‘Elizabeth’ for the first time in Korea along with highlights of the musical ‘Mozart!’ I hope that this will be a special time for the fans of the musical to experience a new side of the musical.”
Representative Um Hong Hyun of EMK Musical Company showed great confidence in the concert and stated, “The staff will be comprised of skilled people from Europe, Japan and Korea in order to create a memorable stage for the concert,” and “Kim Junsu will present himself as an artiste like never before to his fans and is working hard to produce a concert that will move the audience with music alone. Please anticipate it.”
Kim Junsu, who played the lead role of ‘Wolfang Mozart’ in January, broke the controversy regarding idols performing in musicals without verification of their capabilities.
He completed his successful debut in the musical industry by receiving the ‘Best Male Newcomer Award’ and ‘Popularity Award’ at The 4th Musical Awards for his explosive vocal skills and detailed delivery of emotions.
40 of the best musical actors will perform at the concert including Seo Bum Seok, Min Young Gi, Shin Young Suk, Bae Hae Sun and Jung Seon Ah. Kim Junsu is planning on performing in ‘Elizabeth’ with Park Eun Tae and Jeon Dong Seok.
Tickets will be on sale from September 1st for four days and will be available at Interpark and Yes24.
