Shen Yun Gives You Hope for the Future

May 6, 2017

“I drove for five hours from Pennsylvania … and I brought my daughter here because it’s her birthday, she just turned eleven; I wanted her to see something that shows the richness of the Chinese culture and tradition.”

“I have to say that we were all so struck by how profound the discipline was and how much joy and beauty there was, and the creativity. I was crying because it was so beautiful and there’re so many things in the world that are a little ugly and whatever [is] happening, but … you see the possibilities of human beauty and creativity and how amazing it can be.”

“This gives you hope for the future to see such beauty—just something touching on such a deep level. I have to say I have never seen anything like this—this is a thing that is once in a lifetime.”

“It’s very, very interesting and that gentleman [tenor] who sang… I felt like an arrow right to my heart. I won’t forget that for the rest of my life.”

“I came from a little place called Damascus, Pennsylvania; we live in the middle of the woods, forest. And this will never look the same after watching these lovely girls looking like the spirits of the flowers.”
