British musical star Sarah Brightman hit the stage in Seoul last Saturday with a Christmas program in front of 3,000 people at KBS Arena Hall.The past few years were "challenging," Brightman (62) told the audience.In an e-mail interview with Korean media earlier, Brightman said, "I wanted to create a show that included everything we feel at this time of year… However, there is another side to Christmas which is a little bit more sorrowful as we remember the people we had lost."
Sarah Brightman performs in Seoul last Saturday.
In that light she performed Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Pie Jesu" in a spirit of condolence for the deadly Halloween stampede in Itaewon."My thoughts go out to all the families who have lost loved ones and the people themselves and I am really sorry about this," she said in the interview.The soprano, who was married to composer Lloyd Webber in the 1980s, has frequently performed in Korea since the turn of the millennium.
