On the 6th from ten o’clock, the Seoul Arts Center’s website was down, overwhelmed by the number of log-ins before the third opening of ticket sales for the musical Elisabeth, in which XIA Junsu appears. It was the last chance to get tickets for the show, so Junsu’s fans were vying to buy them. On at least one portal site, “Kim Junsu” and “Seoul Arts Center” ranked at the top among words searched.
Elisabeth tells about the life and death of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. The music was composed by Sylvester Levay, who composed the musicals Mozart! and Rebecca as well, and the book and lyrics are by Michael Kunze. Elisabeth has enjoyed successful runs in Europe for over 20 years.
Junsu plays Toad, a personification of death., Some other members of the cast are Kim So Hyun, Ok Ju Hyun, Pak Hyo Shin, and Lee Ji Hoon.
