“The colors were phenomenal; I couldn’t get enough of it; really they were so beautiful, the costumes so beautiful, but what I really appreciate is learning about the culture of China. They so spiritual. That is really profound; it’s really neat when you think about it.”

“It’s so spiritual. … When they had the scene where the young man was taken away because of his beliefs, it makes you appreciate being here [in the United States] all the more. And that’s [the persecution] still goes on today, that’s very sad to me.”

“[The orchestra was] absolutely lovely, just so soft and rich, and mesmerizing really, the music so rhythmic. … Each scene was so different: it either made you feel happy and put a smile on your face or if it was rhythmic, you feel energized, or with strong dramatic music, you were sad, so the music really expressed that.”

“[Shen Yun] is phenomenal, and if people have the opportunity to come, they should. I have heard people describe that you feel all emotions, and that’s what I would say, you do. It just transports you to a different place and you learn a lot too.”
