DETROIT—On Saturday afternoon, audience members at the Detroit Opera House were offered a special treat—the richness of thousands of years of civilization unveiled onstage by the renowned Shen Yun Performing Arts.
“It’s breathtaking,” said Mr. Konja, director at a global supplies company, who was in the audience that afternoon with his wife Karolynne.
Once known as the Land of the Divine, China’s glorious culture is believed to have been brought down from the heavens. New York-based Shen Yun has set out to revive this culture that has been almost lost under the atheistic communist regime, explains the program book.
Mr. Konja said one of the things that impressed him about the performance was its “pristine atmosphere.”
“The colors are beautiful, the dancing is certainly authentic. It’s just an eye-opener,” Mr. Konja said.
“It’s just beautiful,” added his wife.
Shen Yun features works of classical Chinese dance, one of the most comprehensive dance systems in the world and one that encompasses the country’s rich cultural traditions.
Mr. Konja said seeing Shen Yun helped put China and its culture into perspective.
“Perfect, perfect,” he said of the performance.
New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts has four touring companies that perform simultaneously around the world. Shen Yun’s World Company will perform in Detroit until Feb. 9. For more information, visit: ShenYunPerformingArts.org
