Dresden Music Festival 2011: Asian Pop Meets European Classic

Scream Alert at Sempers

Dresden – A new experience in the solemn Semperoper: not a quiet devotion while expecting a musical experience, but a heated up emotional atmosphere reigned Thursday night, when the artful meeting of the chief director of the music festival Jan Vogler on the cello and the “South Korean King Of Pop” (“TIME Magazine”) Rain, took place. With his appearance a scream alert was scheduled.

It was his first stage performance in Europe – a sensation, not only for his fans. There were visitors from 25 countries, families were travelling from Japan, Korea and China. Teenies in Party-Chic, equipped with colorful light sticks, never-ending clicking cell phone cameras and plushies were part of the scenery. To every teasing dance move, every wink of the idol, hysterical screams were not far away. Some ladies in evening gowns must have felt being out of place.

05.19.11 [Newsen] Rain becomes the first Korean to participate in German Dresden Music Festival

Becoming the first person from Korea to participate in German Dresden Music Festival on May 19th, world star Rain (Jung Ji Hoon) will show new performances to the public at Semperoper (opera house) where the festival will be held.

According to Rain’s agent, “Rain’s come to be on stage at the Dresden Music Festival as he’s been asked to perform with ‘Jan Vogler’, a world-class cellist and executive director for the festival.”

It is extremely unusual for a pop singer to be on stage at the Dresden Music Festival, and this has been the first try of ‘Jan Vogler’ who has a lot of concern for Oriental culture since he changed its original theme while placing emphasis on a reversal in international aspects.

Meanwhile, even though they’ve decided to break with the long tradition and tried something new where pop singer Rain’ll perform with the symphony orchestra, the concert tickets are known to be sold out.

German “Dresden Music Festival” which starts May 18, will be held sponsored by MCM, a global luxury brand.

On May 19, a joint concert between ‘Jan Vogler’, executive director for the festival and German world-class cellist, and Rain, Korean pop star and actor selected twice as one of Time’s top 100 most influential people in the world, will be held.
