Universal Ballet opens season with ‘Korea Emotion’ – The Korea Herald

“Korea Emotion” unfolds as an exhibition of diverse dance ensembles and duets. The opening piece, “Rhapsody of the East Sea,” and the finale, “Gangwon, Jeongseon Arirang 2014,” showcase vibrant and powerful group dances performed by 16 and 18 dancers, respectively. In “Dancing Moonlight,” four ballerinas move to the melodies of gayageum and ajaeng. In “Cold Rain,” four ballerinos dance to the song inspired by a Joseon poem comparing the heart of a woman to cold rain. Two female dancers perform “DasomeⅠ,” conveying the emotions of mother-daughter affection or sisterly love, while two male dancers perform “Dasome Ⅱ” to express brotherly love. Emotionally charged pieces like “Mirinaegil,” “Moonlight Young” and “Bee Yeon” capture the love and longing between couples. The upcoming performance is a farewell stage for principal dancer Son You-hee. Son joined Universal Ballet in 2004, went on to join the Tulsa Ballet in the US in 2013 and returned to Universal Ballet in 2019. Each episode of “Korea Emotions” features different dancers on different days of the performance. For more details, visit the official website.
