NEW YORK— For the second year running, artist Mrs. Denigris came to see the Divine Performing Arts (DPA) at New York's famous Radio City Music Hall. This year, on the auspicious eve of Chinese lunar New Year, Jan. 25.

"I was here last year. I loved it last year and this year when I saw it advertised up in the Greenwich Time, I saw, ‘Oh, I’ve got to bring my friends.' So I’ve got several Korean friends that I brought with me and my son and my husband, so there are seven of us. Lucky seven," said Mrs. Denigris.

As a painter of traditional Chinese landscapes and wildlife herself, Mrs. Denigris said what she loved best about the show was the scenery.

"I loved the scenery. Besides the dancing and the music, the scenery is absolutely gorgeous and being a student of the Chinese art I appreciate the scenery more than the average person because I do that type of work. I’m inspired."

DPA use a state-of-the art, stage-sized digital backdrop to display ever-changing images of traditional China.

"I love it. It’s inspiring. It just makes me want to go home and start painting," reflected Mrs. Denigris.

"It’s beautiful."
