Beautiful harmony of music and play
The word music theatre originated when the German composer Wagner declared composite arts,
the combination of dramatic poem, music and dance, and called it the music theatre.
In the present, music theatre is used as a general genre consisting performances with music
and play like musical and Changgeuk, the Korean musical drama. Uijeongbu Music Theatre
Festival is introducing every genre of performing arts that has music as its base, and aiming
to become an open festival by discovering various pieces regardless of frontiers.
