[The Chosun Ilbo, December 26 2007] Korean Operatic Couple to Star at Covent Garden

A Korean soprano and tenor are going to sing the leading roles in Puccini’s "La Boheme" at the prestigious Royal Opera House, also known as Covent Garden, in London.

The production, which is to open in September next year, will feature tenor Kim Woo-kyung (30) as Rodolfo and soprano Hong Hye-kyung (48) as Mimi. The two are the first Koreans to sing the leading roles together in the Royal Opera House' 270-year history.
