Big excitement, lots of preparations, and finally Kevin, Thyra and I arrived in Seoul yesterday to finish coaching the cast of Korean children for OBT’s performances of Nutcracker here, set to open later this week. Entering the lobby of the Seoul Art Center, where we are to perform, we see posters for all the upcoming shows and looked eagerly for OBT’s images and logo. But all we could find was…. Cinderella On Ice?? HUH? Has there been some mistake? Have we been booted in favor of an ICE BALLET?!?
But luckily, before panic set in, we saw the real advertisement outside— a larger-than-life banner for OUR performances, hung on the side of the building for all of Seoul to see (and buy tickets for). Phew!
