LAS VEGAS—Dr. Holger Reiter, CEO of Technical Language Services, Inc., and his wife Elizabeth Reiter, DDS, owner of Harmony Dental, were in the audience for a full house performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts’ New York Company at Reynolds Hall in the Smith Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 22.
“The dancing is very nice,” said Dr. Reiter. “The costumes are great.”
According to Shen Yun’s website, “In 2006, a group of leading classical Chinese artists came together in New York with one wish: to revive the true, divinely inspired culture of China and share it with the world.”
“A Shen Yun performance features the world’s foremost classically trained dancers, a unique orchestra blending East and West, and dazzling animated backdrops—together creating one spectacular performance,” says the website.
“I like the synchronization of the dancing,” said Mrs. Reiter. “It’s quite good. They are very professional.”
Both Dr. and Mrs. Reiter liked the interaction between the dancers and the digital backdrop. “That is very nicely done,” said Dr. Reiter. “Very enjoyable.”
Shen Yun’s soloist singers, who sing in the challenging bel canto style while retaining Chinese diction, impressed Mrs. Reiter.
“Fantastic,” said Mrs. Reiter. “Very, very well trained.” She appreciated that the lyrics, which were in Chinese, were translated into English on the backdrop.
Mrs. Reiter said she would recommend the show to other people.
“It’s beautifully done and choreographed, and the costumes are outstanding,” she said. “And it is nice to learn a little about a culture that we know very little about in the United States.”
