SYDNEY, Australia—Graham Ainsworth has some good Chinese friends and has even visited China, but he has never been to a Chinese Spectacular show before.
He was thoroughly amazed by what he saw. "The beautiful costuming…Musically, it's beautiful. The drums are spectacular...," he said.
But his favourite parts of the show demonstrated feminine gentleness: "And the ladies, too, they're so gentle…Just the gentleness, the graceful[ness], the costuming!" he said.
He mentioned in particular 'Lightness and Grace', in which ladies danced with fans, and 'Nymphs of the Sea', where the ladies use fabric to simulate a waterfall.
Mr Ainsworth commented: "Oh, just the gentleness, the gracefulness. Dance all round the world is different. But the Asian dancing is so graceful, you know; it's beautiful."
As to the human rights element of the show, Mr Ainsworth said: "All I can say is that we're lucky in Australia. We don't have to experience that. Yeah, I think you can feel that in the show tonight…you can actually feel the emotion of that sort of thing. It's a really emotional, the evening. And it's obviously very real. It's definitely real. It's very sad actually, that human beings treat each other that way."
Overall, Mr Ainsworth said that this show was different from others in that "it's just a very calm, a very beautiful night. Very calm - it's a lovely atmosphere, you know? I want to come again!"
