TAIPEI, Taiwan–Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company’s 2011 Taiwan tour came to a close after it performed in Taipei on the evening of April 21. To grasp the last opportunity to appreciate the genuine essence of the 5,000-year Chinese culture presented by Shen Yun this year, many elites and other mainstream figures from all walks of life flocked to the packed Performance Hall of the Taipei National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall one after another.
Among the audience members were Mr. Adam Tertak, Representative of the Hungarian Trade Office in Taiwan, and his wife. He first heard of Shen Yun Performing Arts from his friend in Budapest when he returned to Hungary last year, Mr. Tertak scheduled himself to attend the Shen Yun show in Taipei on April 3, but he couldn’t make it. It was a lucky coincidence that Shen Yun Performing International Company returned to Taipei and performed three more shows from April 19 to April 21. He and his wife were very pleased to have this opportunity to witness the world-class Shen Yun show this evening.
Amazed by the spectacular performance, Representative Tertak exclaimed, “Beautiful! Impressive! I like it very much. It’s so fantastic.”
Enjoying the live music played by the Shen Yun International Company Orchestra composed of Chinese and Western musical instruments, he noted, “I think the orchestra is good. It’s very nice to have live music.”
About the dynamic digital backgrounds, Mr. Tertak said, “it’s very creative to ‘fly up’ (digital animation gives the impression of fairies and gods on the stage flying to heaven on the backdrops).”
Dressed elegantly, Mrs. Tertak expressed that she enjoyed the performance very much, in particular the brilliant colors of dancers’ costumes and the perfect synchronization of the dances. She acclaimed, “Spectacular! The choreography, costumes, colors, and the teamwork really impressed me…. We love it.”
After appreciating the magnificent performance illustrating the essence of the 5,000-year Chinese culture, Mr. and Mrs. Tertak expressed that they love Chinese culture very much.
