DALLAS—The curtain rose one last time to Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Winspear Opera House on Sunday, treating the audience to two hours of classical Chinese dance and music.

Robert Vela, a finance director at an automobile dealership, said he found Shen Yun to be amazing.

“I think the show is very colorful, it brings back a lot of the history of the Chinese culture and dance,” Mr. Vela said.

“It’s amazing, the way they’ve incorporated the background, it’s just an amazing show.”

Based in New York, Shen Yun has taken it as its mission to revive China’s divinely inspired culture. The company’ productions features animated digital backdrops that interact with the dances on stage, hundreds of handmade costumes, and an orchestra that combines traditional Chinese instruments with classical Western instruments.

“I think the costumes are very amazing; colorful and bright. It’s overwhelming the color of the costumes, Very, very nice, very beautiful,” Mr. Vela said.

‘Love all the dances’

Arturo Ivarra, who owns a restaurant, said he and his wife were very impressed by Shen Yun.

“We are very happy. We’re enjoying the show,” he said during the intermission.

“I really enjoyed also the special effects, the backdrop. I love all the dances.”

Mr. Ivarra added that he enjoyed seeing the Chinese culture presented in the performance.

“I think it’s one of the best that I have ever seen.”
