NEW YORK—Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company continues its two-week run at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center this weekend. Nora Favelukes, president of a wine company, enjoyed the show on Saturday night.
Ms. Favelukes described the performance as “amazing.” She said it was wonderful to see how Shen Yun preserves the culture of China and its ancient forms: “Seeing the different regions and how they are represented, the colors, the costumes, the music—everything is wonderful!”
Shen Yun presents classical Chinese dance and Chinese folk dance enriched by hi-tech, animated backdrops. The dances are accompanied by the Shen Yun New York Company Orchestra, which features both Eastern and Western instruments and the company’s original compositions.
The performance showcases world-class vocalists and features dances that tell stories from China’s ancient tradition as well as today. Chinese folk dances depict the cultures of some of China’s ethnic minorities.
Ms. Favelukes said, “The production level is very sharp and very high, definitely this is … a high-standard show.” She said the show left her feeling inspired and happy.
