BUENOS AIRES—Patricia Daniele, a Noticias Magazine reporter, hoped that many more people would attend the Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company’s presentation staged at Teatro Opera Citi through December 21.
“Very nice, it really surprised me, was something unexpected,” Ms. Daniele said of the New York-based company that captured 5,000 years of traditional culture in Chinese classical dance and music.
“I loved the way they dance: the positions, the hands, the movement. The costumes—beautiful, very bright, the way the fabrics fall is impeccable. They follow the movements. I liked it very much.”
According to the Shen Yun website, the show moves quickly through regions, dynasties, and legends. Ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with color and energy. Tremendous athleticism, thunderous battle drums, and masterful vocalists are all set to animated backdrops that transport the audience to another world.
“It’s a very nice show; I hope that many people will come to see it,” she said.
Shen Yun comprises nearly 100 artists, 400 handmade costumes, and the only orchestra in the world featuring both classical Western and Chinese instruments as permanent members, the website states.
Ms. Daniele said she felt comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire evening. “I didn’t feel it was long at all, even though it has two parts.”
To encourage others to see the show, Ms. Daniele would tell her friends it was a very colorful performance for the whole family to enjoy.
“You’ll love it,” she concluded.
