BUCHAREST, Romania—The Shen Yun Chinese Spectacular received an enthusiastic welcome in Bucharest, Romania as it opened Monday night at the celebrated National Theatre. Playing to a full house and a standing ovation, Divine Performing Arts portrayed the deep values of ancient culture of China.
Narcis Dragomir, a Bucharest-based lawyer, and his wife recently became new parents, but they took a night off to see the Spectacular. Attracted by the poster, but also by the rich culture and traditions of China, they came and enjoyed it very much. "I was most impressed by the drums and the fans," said Mr. Dragomir, when asked about his favorite performances.
His wife was also touched by the message of the show. "I thought it was wonderful. The message got to our hearts."
Vasile Roman, a doctor, said he also enjoyed the show very much. He had some background in Chinese history and noticed the differences between the Spectacular and other Chinese shows from China.
Catalin Darasteanu, an accountant, came to the show with a friend, who thought it would be a good way to spend a relaxing evening. They were not disappointed.
"[It's] nice, very nice. I'm not very familiar with Chinese culture, but it's very nice. I was especially attracted by the costumes."
He was also particularly impressed by the Mongolian Tea dance ["Mongolian Bowl Dance"] and the drummers.
When asked if he would come back, Mr. Darasteanu didn't hesitate: "Yes, definitely," he said.
