BUENOS AIRES—Eighty-eight year old entrepreneur Zulema Samar Cuareta attended one the most exciting performances of her life on Dec. 13: the premier of the Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company in Buenos Aires’ Teatro Ópera Citi.
I´m 88 years old and I have traveled quite a bit around the world, I have seen a lot, but [Shen Yun] is far from ordinary,” she said.
“Never ever have I seen something from a dance—so in sync and the choreography, the set design, the colors—at this stage in my life, a truly [unprecedented] performance.”
New York-based Shen Yun is the world’s top classical Chinese dance and music company.
According to the website, Shen Yun has three performing companies that simultaneously tour the world in an effort to revive 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture through classical Chinese art forms.
Mrs. Cuareta attended the show with her niece María Eugenia Migretti and said the dazzling colors used in Shen Yun’s costumes and digital backdrops were what grabbed her attention and impressed her the most.
“There are scenes with colors that one is unable to imagine—neither the combinations of them or their brilliance,” she said.
“Overall, very, very lovely.”
Shen Yun’s costumes, known for their intricate details and rich, vibrant colors, are also designed to harmonize with the backdrops for an overall stage effect.
Mrs. Cuareta said the aesthetics of the show and the color combinations gave her a feeling of purity and brightness.
“It seemed to me very pure, stimulating my feelings well,” she said, adding she was honored to express her impression of Shen Yun.
“Very clean, with a lot of brightness—that is what I felt.”
