Introduction
A world-class performing arts center, Sejong Center is the largest cultural arts complex in Seoul. Since its opening in 1978, it has been dedicated to the preservation and celebration of authentic Korean art, enriching the lives of Seoul citizens. After going through renovations in 2007 the Sejong Center reopened with new facilities and is now comprised of the Grand Theater, M Theater, Sejong Chamber Hall, art gallery, and other spaces to accommodate various kinds of performances and exhibitions.

The Grand Theater of Sejong Center (occ. 3,022), the center’s main performance venue, houses the largest pipe organ in Asia and a majestic stage that can be transformed to accommodate any type of performance (concerts, plays, ballets, movies, etc.). The theater also comes equipped with computer-controlled lighting and audio systems, which allow for precision staging.

M Theater can seat up to 609 people on its three floors and boasts a relatively large stage (capacity: 100 performers) compared to the theater’s small size.

Subsidiary facilities at the Sejong Center include an art shop, conference rooms for artists, and many spacious lounges where people can relax. The Sejong Center is worth visiting not only for an exhibition or performance, but also just to take a look around.
