January 27, 2018

“It’s amazing! The soprano was unbelievable and I loved the chopsticks dance [a traditional Mongolian dance titled ‘Lofty Spirits on the Grasslands’]. Fantastic—very funny, just makes me laugh. It was very, very good.”

“The dancers were unbelievable. They looked like they were floating across the stage. … They’re beautiful.”

“I love the screen in the background; it flows with what’s on the stage [referring to Shen Yun’s animated backdrop that interacts with the live performance on the stage]. It’s really amazing. It’s unique. I’ve never seen anything like it before.”

“[Regarding China’s 5,000 years of history presented by Shen Yun,] it’s so good for us here in North America to be able to see that journey. It’s very, very interesting. [The Chinese culture] is very diverse. It’s beautiful, and the costumes are unbelievable.”

“[Referring to the soprano,] you can tell that she’s passionate about what she’s singing. And the pianist [accompanying her] was amazing.”

“This is a gift from our mom. She’s 91 years old. She’ll be very happy that we enjoyed it so much.”
