SYDNEY, Australia—John and Shelley Wilkins really "felt" the Spectacular when they attended the matinee session at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on April 5.
"When you watch the other shows, it's sort of like you're 'watching it', not actually feeling it... This one you feel, you actually feel.It's wonderful," said Mrs Wilkins.
Mr Wilkins agreed, commending the performers for their ability to transmit that feeling.
"I think the cast makes you feel like you're part of the experience as well and that's very nice.
"You can feel the whole...it just comes across. At an aesthetic level, it's very difficult to feel it or touch it, but you can feel it from the spiritual being."
Both Mr and Mrs Wilkins loved the presentation of the show but particularly liked the songs.
"I think that dance that looked like water, the Water Nymphs ['Nymphs of the Sea'], that was my favourite and also the words in the songs. There were two songs, one was the soprano and one was the baritone - and that was beautiful, the words in the songs were just beautiful," said Mrs Wilkins.
"I liked the wording on some of the songs. They said that truth will set you free. It cuts across all cultures and it's such a truism for all cultures all around the world. I think it's fantastic," said Mr Wilkins.
Mr Wilkins is an executive director of a human rights commission Australia, and both are interested in social justice issues. They felt the show represented issues that Chinese people were presently facing and were glad that concerns about the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China were raised.
"I think it's wonderful to have this information being put out about Falun Gong so people can see how beautiful and how wonderful it actually is. The dancing, gorgeous, the dresses are beautiful and it's just wonderful, really good," Mrs Wilkins said.
"Lots of hard work [has] gone into it [the show]," said Mr Wilkins. "It's a wonderful experience as a spectator. It was very spiritually enhancing just to be there."
