For those who frequent the calendar section of PhilipGlass.com, you may have noticed that the Sejong Soloists, in the middle of its international tour, performed music from "la Belle et la Bete" in North Korea yesterday. I wonder how the music was received.
(Dan discovered that in fact Sejong played in South Korea, thanks to the folks at Chester Novello for confusing the two countries. The curiousity remains about how the music was received.)

The Sejong site seems to suggest they’re playing in South Korea. I’ll investigate further….
Alas, my sources confirm South Korea. But now I can’t stop wondering what, in fact, they would’ve made of Glass up North!
Thanks for writing in. The confusion comes from Chester Novello’s site where they list it as North Korea. I couldn’t get much info from the bizarre Sejong website so I left is as it is. Thanks for doing the research.
