AUCKLAND, New Zealand—The "City of Sails" appears to be even more enchanting graced by the presence of the Divine Performing Arts Group. On April 18th, not only did the second Chinese Spectacular attract many audience members from Auckland's mainstream society, many overseas Chinese also came, including tourists from Mainland China who had just arrived in Auckland.
Mr Wan Ming who came from China just a month ago saw the Spectacular and was very emotional. He said that the show gave one a sense of great beauty. It had high artistic standards and was very thought provoking. After watching the show, one had a very comfortable feeling.
He said, "I felt very good after watching the performance. I have seen many song and dance shows in China but this is the first time I see a show as pure as the Spectacular. "
He feels that nowadays Mainland China has lost its traditions and the shows are commercialized. He said, "People feel irritated after watching commercialized performances. Many traditions in China have been discarded. China's five thousands year history should be preserved."
Wan Ming also said, "Watching the Spectacular, I feel as if I have returned to a very pure world. Every item in the show is very good because it portrays traditional Chinese culture."
Wan Ming further added that the Spectacular has expressed two important messages. "One is Chinese people should never forget their roots, this is the most important thing. Another message is the universal values of Truth, Compassion and Tolerance. This is very important too."
Lastly he said, "Chinese traditional culture expresses traditional human virtues and is a type of very refined culture in the world. This is unlike many cultures that have become distorted nowadays. It is very difficult to see such traditional arts in China now. Furthermore no one in China will choreograph such shows."
