BRISBANE, Australia—Chi Tang, an architecture student at University of Queensland, was impressed by the drum performances in the Divine Performing Arts Chinese Spectacular at the Brisbane Convention Centre on Tuesday April 8, the last performance in Brisbane.
"The drumming was really good and interesting. The intensity, the movements…it was all big and bold," she said.
Ms Tang said the show would help people understand traditional cultures.
"I knew a little bit about the ancient culture and stories…the hosts tell the story beforehand, so it was really good for other people."
Chi's mother, Melanie Tang, a Taiwanese national and travel consultant in Brisbane, said the show made her feel "very excited, wonderful".
Mrs Tang enjoyed 'The Loyalty of Yue Fei', a story about a famous general in Chinese history who was torn between caring for his ailing mother and defending the country. "Yue Fei…the story [is from] the region's stories we read before, so we…have a deeper appreciation."
She also felt the quality of the show was impressive. "Compared with the local [performances] in China or Taiwan…they are more experienced and the skill is very good."
When asked what she would tell people about the show, Mrs Tang said: "I would say, this [show] is like the Chinese culture and because they have many stories we read from the childhood…this dancing has more influence, so they should just come."
