Shen Yun is ‘Something to cherish and remember for the rest of your life’

“I have seen a lot of operas and performances in the metropolitan over in New York and Vienna, all over, [and] there is no comparison. This is the creme de la creme.” 
 

“Because it’s so different: it is full of emotion, she’s crying because we’re thinking of our great grandfather as we’re going through the different stages of the dynasties.” 
 

“It makes me very happy to see people who are talented with special skills to perform and entertain people. To me, this is not just entertainment. This is history. This is education. This is something to cherish and remember for the rest of your life. That’s why we came.” 
 

“It’s only the Chinese people who can put together 5,000 years of history in terms of dance and music. Everything is so precise and it is just no comparison to the many plays and performances that I have seen in my life.” 
 

“I am just so happy that we came.”
 

“The essence of Chinese culture, it is so preserved [here] and so honored and celebrated … China has really made an impact on the rest of the world and that is very important. … I just love it. I can see it again and again.” 
 

“I would just say it is a must see! You must experience it and you must feel it with your heart, not just entertainment for your eyes. But think of the history and the many stages of civilizations that went through those years and years. But I don’t know how many people would understand that, but in my heart it remains there.”
