BOSTON—The blizzard that struck the East Coast on the weekend meant the Kostich family saw Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Boston Opera House on Monday, rather than Friday night as originally planned.
George Kostich, a retired professor of Russian literature, said he was fascinated by the performance and touched by the enthusiasm demonstrated by Shen Yun’s young dancers.
“It’s a spectacle, a wonderful spectacle. There was a lot of enthusiasm. Exceptionally well-synchronized,” he said.
His wife Mirjana Kostich, a retired pediatrician, said Shen Yun was fantastic and she would advise everyone to come and see the performance.
“Everything is so nice. The color is so beautiful. The scenery is beautiful. The stage is fantastic. It’s unbelievable,” Mrs. Kostich said. “Very well-coordinated and very nicely choreographed.”
Their daughter Natalie Kostich is director of an international student exchange program in Cambridge, Mass., and has traveled to China. Like her parents, she was impressed by Shen Yun.
“I loved it as well,” she said. “I loved the colors. I loved the effects from the screen [the digital backdrop], and when they jump into the water and then suddenly they’re on stage,” she said, referring to the dance Sand Monk Is Blessed.
“I also like the voices. The singing of the soloists was also really moving, especially the soprano moved me very much,” she said.
“You really get a taste of China here [at Shen Yun]. I wish there were more of this,” she said.
