NEW YORK—Shen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company opened its first show of the Chinese Lunar New Year at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Among audience members were people like artist Val Tsar, who said he was “grateful” to be at the show.

Mr. Tsar, who attended with his wife, said he felt like Shen Yun brought ancient Chinese culture alive. He particularly liked the “beautiful background, unbelievable colors, unbelievable mountains, rocks, and atmosphere.”

He added that the beauty of the show greatly impressed him.

“The people really dance and know what they're doing and representing history,” said Mr. Tsar.

He expressed gratitude and pride for the show's performance.

Shen Yun seeks to revive the lost Chinese heritage through classical Chinese dance, music, and song. The performing company bills itself as the premier classical Chinese dance show.

“I appreciate it so much and it’s an honor to be here, and celebrate the Chinese New Year,” he said.

Shen Yun has already graced many of the world’s greatest stages, including New York’s Radio City Music Hall, London’s Royal Festival Hall, Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center, and Paris’ Le Palais de Congrès.
