HOUSTON—Cindy Hide was in the audience for Shen Yun Performing Arts’ opening night at Houston’s Jones Hall for the Performing Arts on Dec. 23.
Ms. Hide, the owner of a Houston-based law firm, said she was most struck by Shen Yun’s portrayal of the universal messages that run through mankind. “Very different way of looking,” she said. “The same emotional value comes through: good and bad, dark and light, family, and also working together as a team—that’s what I see.”
According to Shen Yun’s website, the universal language of music and dance transforms its viewers through 5,000 years of Chinese culture: “Its stunning beauty and tremendous energy leave audiences uplifted and inspired,” reads the website.
“The big message is working together. The common theme of love and good and bad—very universal,” Ms. Hide added. “The value in good for us all is something that comes through.”
Ms. Hide said she was also very impressed by the richness of color provided throughout the performance. “It’s very beautiful,” she said. “The colors are very bright, and vibrant, and very fun and happy colors. I am enjoying the colorful experience.
Overall, she concluded, “I’m enjoying that visual experience of the performance.”
