SAN FRANCISCO—The Divine Performing Arts (DPA) performed for the last day in San Francisco's Orpheum Theater on Jan. 26 to a packed house.
This last show marks DPA's twenty-third performance across the nation. It was an amazing feat!
San Franciscans got a unique taste of Chinas 5,000 year history, with DPA's Chinese New Year Spectacular highlighting the prosperous Tang Dynasty.
In addition, the audience was treated to the glorious live sounds of the Diving Performing Arts Orchestra, complete with both eastern and western instruments.
Some liked the music, some liked the dance, and others liked the colors and costumes. But all exalted in the show being nothing short of "Spectacular!"
Richard who just came out of the show stated, "I love it, its great, wonderful, its Spectacular!" And, "I feel great, it's really inspiring!"
Two older ladies from San Francisco were all smiles as they left the theatre. One lady stated, "I thought it was the most magnificent thing I have ever seen."
While her friend who grew up in New York going to Broadway shows said, "This [Spectacular] is far and above anything our western culture is exporting."
She added, "I'm at a loss for words, it was so spectacular, it was exquisitely beautiful. The grace, the culture, the charm, the discipline, the bearing and the form, the technique—it far surpasses anything I've every seen in western culture."
Cathy Chang who came with a friend stated, "I think the dancing is great! I think its enlightening! And I liked the drums!"
Geneva Lee who works as a CFO for an electrical contractor brought little Angela Blanca from Antioch, California. Lee said the show was "wonderful," but particularly appreciated the message of the songs.
Lee stated, "Each one of the songs we heard had a real great message about hope and turning this world around and making it better."
And little Angela really liked the drums, "I liked the drumming because it was loud and fun!"
When Lee was asked if the show was worth it she said,
"Oh yes, it was really worth it!"
