Seoul Arts Centre
Lonely Planet review for Seoul Arts Centre
This sprawling arts complex has a circular opera house with a roof shaped like a Korean nobleman’s hat. It also houses the 700-seat Towol Theatre and the smaller Jayu Theatre. The national ballet and opera companies are based here. Music House consists of a large concert hall and a smaller recital hall and is home to the national choir, the Korea and Seoul symphony orchestras and the Seoul performing arts company. There are also three art galleries here: Hangaram Design Museum, Hangaram Art Museum and Seoul Calligraphy Museum. The website has a calendar of the many events, shows and programs. To reach it, walk straight on from the subway exit and turn left at the end of the bus terminal, or else hop on bus 12 (W800) or grab a taxi (W2000).
