PRAGUE, Czech Republic— "It was absolutely perfect and excellent," said Ms. Kostulanova, an artist, at Tuesday's Matinee show of the Divine Performing Arts Chinese Spectacular, playing at the Prague Congress Center.
"I liked it very much, and all the dancers were the top of the top dancers. I'm very enthusiastic about ballet. As a young girl, I was a ballet dancer too."
"I really liked the singers. They were excellent. ... They had such big strong voices."
"The costumes were so beautiful and colorful," she added.
"They had very nice composition to them. Because I create pictures myself, it gave me an example how to put such nice colors together. The costumes were not only colorful, but also very elegant, with a good presentation."
The Chinese Spectacular encompasses 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture that is portrayed through music and dance. Ms. Kostulanova, said that she was glad that she got to learn about the Chinese culture.
"I have been to Beijing, and I have seen the Chinese opera and also in Paris and London as well. I enjoyed this performance very much."
When told about the Chinese Embassy's attempt to stop the show from happening, Ms. Kostulanova expressed surprise. "I had no idea," she said. "You know, those politicians have nothing better to do."
After finishing its world tour, the Divine Performing Arts Chinese Spectacular will have been presented in over 65 cities and to an audience of over 700,000.
