SYDNEY, Australia—Dr Sev Ozdowski, former Australian Human Rights Commissioner, attended the Chinese Spectacular with his wife Hannah on Wednesday April 2. They enjoyed last year's show, but during opening night intermission at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, they revealed this year the show was even better."… the show is different [from last year]. I use the word aristocratic – more…culture, more elegant.
"There is a lot of elegance," Mrs Ozdowski agreed, "and somehow everything together is just more appealing to me now than it was last year…Last time it was good, but for some reason I am connecting to this, this show."
The Human Rights Commissioner and Disability Discrimination Commissioner from 2000 to 2005 thought the performances were "beautiful". His wife picked out some favourites. "We had two favourite pieces; one was the ladies 'Nymphs of the Sea'. The drummers were excellent, the dance with the bowls ['Mongolian Bowl Dance'].
"And I also like the designs of the costumes; it's very rich and it compliments the dancers as well, and I guess without it, it won't be the way of dancing," said Mrs Ozdowski.
The costumes worn by the Divine Performing Arts company were designed to convey the traditions of China's ancient culture, making them authentic and true to the history of the time and each relevant dynasty.
