RC students took to the Suna Kıraç Hall stage in December, performing the colorful musical "Harem". Written by Değer Turan L12 and music teacher Koray Demirkapı, and choreographed by Pınar Akkor L12, the show intertwined intrigue at the Seraglio with lavish costumes and stage design, and a unique blend of rock-arabesque music.
“Last year, Değer mentioned his project to me and asked me to write the music,” said Koray Demirkapı. “There were some lyrics written first and then composed, but mostly I did the composing and the lyrics were written afterwards. Değer is a very talented lyrics writer. He understood me very clearly and his adaptation of the songs was great. Most of the lyrics are written by him. Kutay Onaylı L11, who played one of the characters in the show, also wrote the lyrics of a song and then I composed it. Those lyrics were great as well. I was very lucky I had the chance to work with such talented students.”
