Shen Yun, An Emphasis on Traditional Chinese Values

“I enjoyed it very much. I’m sure the rest will be just as good. Obviously all of the performers are immensely skilful. The music is very, very beautiful. So it is a lovely combination of movement and sound.”
 

“It does excite emotions, the beauty of the music. [I feel] immense pleasure.”
 

“[There is] obviously an emphasis on traditional Chinese spiritual values. I think it is summed up in the comment of Truth, Compassion and Tolerance. It’s important for people to always have values in life, and they are excellent values to have.”
 

“I think it’s very unfortunate [Shen Yun cannot be seen in China]. I hope tolerance will become a part of ordinary daily Chinese lives in China.”
