Shen Yun Performing Arts made its return to the Prairies with a full-house opening show at Calgary’s Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on Easter Sunday afternoon.
Brian Fischer, Assistant Deputy Minister of Shared Network Services for Service Alberta, attended the show with Ms. Jivraj and said it was “really, really, great.”
Leon Benoit, MP for Vegreville-Wainwright: "The way the dancers are blended in with the background, that was phenomenal, that was just really remarkable."
The choreography was of high quality, Ms. Zingle said, noting the different formations and variations.
The use of the animated digital backdrops throughout the show also stood out for Ms. Heusser.
“There’s lots of colour and the dynamics, it’s something I have never seen before."
“It's exciting; the colours, everything is just wonderful,” said Mr. Giovanni, owner of Giovanni Music.
Painter Kari Duke: “Its hugely artistic, it was just a beautiful experience, absolutely lovely.”
“The singing was really well done,” said Mr. Stachnik, adding he appreciated the English translation of the song’s meaning.
"This is a very impressive show," Mr. Rathgeber said.
“It was great. Lots of colorful costumes and the dancing was amazing,” said Anastasia. “They make gorgeous pictures.”
Chuck Triffin: “It’s beautiful, a work of art and what can you say? It’s breathtaking, it’s breathtaking.”
Mr. Braucht was impressed with the creativity expressed through the story-based dances.
Shen Yun Performing Arts dazzled a full-house audience at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium who came to see the world’s premier Chinese classical dance and music company.
Murray Armstrong attended the show with his family and called the experience “spectacular.”
