Retired Theater Producer and Director: Shen Yun Artists Are Exquisite

April 18, 2018

“It was wonderful, beautifully choreographed. The performers are exquisite.”

“The orchestra was quite exceptional, and I loved the way that the emcees introduced [the orchestra]. It was one of the funniest and most charming introduction of an orchestra I’ve ever seen.”

“The soloist on that ancient musical instrument [erhu], exquisite—it was so fine. Both of the soloists, the singers were also excellent. There’s a great deal of variety in the [performance].”

“[The message is] about using meditation as a method to find truth, for us to find compassion, loving kindness, and those things, and to refrain from becoming so much of this world—which is compelling—and to let go of grasping and attachment.”

“For me, those are many of the things I live in my life, and so I could relate to that. … I felt quite comfortable with that.”

“I would recommend this [performance], for its beauty, to be able to see classical Chinese [dance], and so many different elements.”

“It’s very visually beautiful. I found the integration of the dancers into the background film and digital film wonderful—so delightful.”

“I’d like to see another year in order to see what else they bring. … To be able to see some great stories from China, … I’m very happy that I got to see those things.”
