Seoul Arts Centre information
The national ballet and opera companies are based at this sprawling arts complex, which sports a circular opera house with a roof shaped like a Korean noble- man’s hat. It also houses a large concert hall and a smaller recital hall in which the national choir, the Korea and Seoul symphony orchestras and various drama companies stage shows. A couple more theatres and three art galleries complete the package. Check the website for the extensive program and to find out about free shows, which are often staged at weekends on the outdoor stage. To reach the SAC, walk straight on from the subway exit and turn left at the end of the bus terminal.
