TAICHUNG, Taiwan—Every detail on the artists is a collection of beauty, said Ms. Wang Hsien-Fen as she described the Shen Yun’s costumes. She gave an example, “Looking at the costumes in ‘Fairies of the Sea,’ it allowed me to feel a cool breeze and relaxed me. Every accessory is presented the way it should be.”
According to the program, delicate fairy maidens appear at the surface of the sea, dancing with long silk fans like rippling waves, and soft blue skirts swirling to the rhythm of the cerulean waters.
Ms. Wang is a financial manager. She came to see Shen Yun’s second show at Chung Shan Hall on April 7 with a group of friends. This is her first time seeing Shen Yun.
Ms. Wang was impressed by how Shen Yun balanced all the details in the show. “The live orchestra, the digital projection, and the artists on the stage are balanced into one entity. I enjoy the harmony. I believe that it takes a strong driving force to bring everything together,” she said.
She admired the conductor of the orchestra, believing that he was the core driving force. “He does his job well so that the music doesn’t overwhelm the dances. He deserved the audience’s respect,” said Ms. Wang.
