WORLD-CLASS FOLK BALLET FROM KOREA AT ISTANA BUDAYA
World-class ballet troupe The Little Angels of South Korea are scheduled to provide heart-thrusting entertainment at Istana Budaya in Kuala Lumpur for the public from January 14 to January 17 next year.
With 500 television appearances and more than 50 special performances before heads of state to their credit, the Little Angels are internationally renowned as young ambassadors of Korea’s flamboyantly expressive traditional culture of folks songs, dance, and pulsating drum-and-gong rhythms.
Comprising mostly girls aged 9 to 15, the troupe counts among its distinctions the opening ceremony performances at the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the 2002 FIFA World Cup jointly hosted by Korea and Japan. The troupe has made 55 overseas tours since its founding in 1962.
The Little Angels’ tour next January will be their third visit to Malaysia — the first was in 1974 when they did a royal performance at Istana Malaysia before the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Raja Permaisuri Agong, and the second was in 1996 at PWTC Kuala Lumpur for the public.
Few other folk companies can match the flawless adult professionalism of the Little Angels, as public feedback indicates after each world tour. Their repertoire is based on cultural tradition, and steeped in ancient folklore, with many of the songs and dances dating back 2,000 years. These include stately court dances and the exuberant prancing in the fields of rural Korea with drums, gongs, and cymbals played by the dancers themselves.
Net proceeds will go towards a charity beneficiary Ajar-Ajar Malaysia.
A cultural and artistic feast dished out by 40 cute and beautiful children, it’s a show not to be missed as it rarely comes this way. You will not want to leave your seats at the prestigious Istana Budaya throughout their performance.
