HOUSTON—After the curtains of Divine Performing Arts (DPA) in the Jones Hall for the Performing Arts in Houston gradually fell on Monday night, the audience was left fascinated by the production.

Mr. Macaluso, a Houston-based pilot, found the show very “smooth and entertaining.”

“I thought it was a lot of pageantry. I thought the costumes were absolutely spectacular, the dancing was very graceful,” he said.

“I think it was just kind of a presentation of the culture of the past or the dances of the different regions in the different periods. And I think it’s just showing people and sharing with people what has been done in the past, in the Chinese culture,” Macaluso said, who came to see the show with his friend Sandra Simens.

Simens, a retired flight-attendant, also enjoyed the show and said she thought the costumes were very beautiful and colorful.

Mr. Dyson, a NASA employee, particularly enjoyed the visual aspects of the show.

“What they did with the colors and costumes was really amazing,” said Dyson, who saw the show with his wife.

“There was an interesting mix of the Western music as well as the Chinese harmonies. But it was really the visual impact the colors and the way they worked their blouses and their dresses—it was really something,” he said.

Muhlstein though the show was “very stimulating for the brain” and McClellan thought the show was “wonderful” and “very exciting.”
