Shen Yun Is an ‘Extraordinary Spectacle,’ Consulate Officer Says

April 12, 2018

“It was beautiful, gorgeous.”

“The soprano was gorgeous, one of the best I’ve ever heard in my life.”

“[I enjoyed] the digital images that are synchronized with the performance of the dancers. The costumes are very beautiful, the music—it’s a really extraordinary spectacle.”

“I had high expectations considering the reviews and the images of the show, and it didn’t disappoint at all. It leaps to the expectations—I’m interested to know more about the traditions, the stories. The emcees also explained the context of what you’re viewing and also helped you understand it better.”

“The Chinese civilization is one of the oldest, the most ancient, and therefore one that has the greatest traditions, a lot of culture, a lot of history. It’s reflected on all these expressions that we can see the cultural manifestations, from music to dance to art.”

“The show not only leaps to expectations, but leaps to its name—it’s indeed like having heavenly beings that have come from the skies and are in front of you performing. It’s something really beautiful, and of course this would not have been possible without the endless and beautiful traditions and culture of China.”

“You also learn a lot, and you can appreciate a little bit of this culture—without the need of crossing the ocean, and traveling thousands of miles to get there.”

“We can see this part of [the performers’] belief of the importance of people standing for their faith, of living together in harmony, of freedom. It’s important.”

“It has a message for the audience of respecting others’ beliefs.”

“Yes, indeed [I would recommend Shen Yun].”
