Shen Yun Performances ‘Could Change the World’

“My wife and I, we’re from New York State. We came over by the ferry just for this. About two hours, and a two hour drive, but it was wonderful. It was absolutely spectacular.
 

“My only regret is that the show cannot be in China, but the individuals who participate can’t return—I find that sad. They are wonderful. It is absolutely one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever seen—everybody on stage seemed to be enjoying themselves.”
 

“I’d watch it over again, and over again, and over again. It is terrific.”
 

“The theme seemed to be of hope.  I’m a highly spiritual person, and I felt it was a very spiritual experience. It really touches the spirit and the heart.”
 

“Both, the soul, the spirit, the heart. It’s just terrific, and everybody should see it. Maybe it would bring hope into our otherwise fractured world, and we can see how much in common we have amidst our differences. You know, we’re all human beings on the same planet, and we’ve got to learn compassion.”
 

“One of the themes, understanding—even the soprano was singing about, let’s understand one another, let’s pay attention to each other, let’s move away from the highly materialistic world that we live in—it’s something that I’ve thought about, talked about, for a long time. … We need to get to our spirits and hearts, and forget about owning and controlling.”
 

“I would encourage everybody to come because it is something that can change your whole spirit and help with some things. I love personally to go anywhere where I can be exposed to somebody else’s culture—the fact that all cultures have this deep spiritual connection that we tend to forget, and this was just amazing.”
