NEW YORK—Mr. Valler, a diplomat from Brazil, experienced Shen Yun Performing Arts at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater with two friends.
“The colors and music, it’s all very interesting,” he said. “We were all very glad to be here.”
Shen Yun, based in New York, presents the ancient, 5,000-year-old Chinese culture through music and story-based dance that take the audience across time and space.
“Shen Yun uses performing arts to present stories that bring to life the inner essence of China’s divinely inspired culture,” according to its website.
Mr. Valler said that coming to see Shen Yun on April 27 “was a wonderful night.”
Dr. Arthur Adamo and his wife Andrea also experienced Shen Yun on Saturday. They bought tickets to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary.
“We wanted to do something special, and this is certainly special,” said Dr. Adamo. “I thought the show was marvelous. The costumes were fantastic and the dancing was superb.”
A founder of the Jacobi Cranio-maxillofacial Surgical Institute in the Bronx, Dr. Adamo won Doctor of the Year award in 2006.
Mrs. Adamo said that she welcomed what she saw as a theme of love in the performance. She and her husband now know what true Chinese culture is like, and how the Chinese people “feel in their hearts,” she said.
