As Konya French Language Community which continue to organize events with the aim of learning and improving French skills, we ended the theater night with fun that was our most recent event.
Selçuklu Convention Center
Selcuklu Convention Center, opened last year in Konya, hosts new plays and concerts of famous artists. The fact that all the tickets were sold already made it very difficult for us to find tickets, but we have found a place even from the balcony. Interestingly, the attendance at the theater was much more than we expected for Konya, so it has both surprised us all and made very happy.
I believe that beautiful events will be held here as a big convention center with beautifully lightened large halls.
Where is Selçuklu Convention Center? How to get there?
Selçuklu Convention Center is located right across Eyüp Sultan tram stop.

Around the World in Eighty Days
I’ve also willingly read the book Around the World in Eighty Days, which everyone read, written by Jules Verne. I have always had an enthusiasm of traveling around the world and seeing new places.
The play version was so beautiful as well.
At first, the music played in the background and the sound of the players could not be understood clearly, but when the music stopped, everything got understood very clearly. Another detail that bothered me was that the decor changes were very noticeable and dizzier. Throughout the play, continuously moving chairs, doors, bags were right in front of my eyes.
The fact that the female player’s voice was too shrill was one of the details, but I didn’t care these because I had fun along the play.
It is not easy to put the world tour on a stage of course I accept that. That’s why it was exceedingly good.
Phileas Fogg and Paspartu (Passe-Par-Tout) were very good! While some of jokes of Detective Fix were very funny, some were at the level of primary school.
How did we find the play as the community?
We all liked this theater play so much that we went together. “Oui, oui“ answers of French Paspartu made us remember our teacher’s “oui, oui” in the lessons when she was teaching something to us.
We were really happy to have such a beautiful event together.
Before my trip to South Africa, it was a good night fully for me.
