Actor Praises Shen Yun Performers’ Characterisation

“The dancing was lovely. … The storytelling has a lot of charm and humour. The folk tales are wonderful because you realise that folk tales, whether they’re from China, or the Grimm or Hans Anderson, you become aware how the morality that runs through them is the same in every country—which is great, which is wonderful.”

“What is interesting was that in the Chinese dance I saw tonight, the acting is so much more important. … The way in which they embodied different characters and things like that, the characterisation, which I thought was very good.”

“I loved the male singer, I thought he was very good, and the female singer, too—they sing a different style from us which is very good.”

“I thought the music was very good. I liked the music.”
