MINNEAPOLIS—”I think it’s great, very entertaining,” said attorney Brian Nasi, after he saw She Yun Performing Arts with his wife Nancy at the Orpheum Theatre, Feb. 16.
Mr. Nasi is an attorney and CEO of United Family Medicine, and Mrs. Nasi is a Pulmonary Function Specialist at the University of Minnesota.
Mr. Nasi said, “I liked the way they blended the technology. First, I was wondering how they were going to blend that big screen with the dancing. I was really impressed. It’s been fun.”
According to Shen Yun’s website: “With state-of-the-art graphics technology, Shen Yun’s digital-backdrop team creates vividly animated settings, extending the stage and transporting the audience to a world where heaven and earth are one.”
Through dance, song, and live orchestral music, the performance brings to life legends and heroes from China’s long and rich history.
“It was just beautiful,” Mr. Nasi added. “First of all, just the themes behind the various dance routines—I liked the dragon. It’s just very entertaining, beautiful.”
“I was supposed to come to this show with my niece,” added Mrs. Nasi. “This morning I found out she cancelled, so I dragged him [her husband], unwillingly, to the production. And so far, the production has brought him to tears a couple of times.”
Mrs. Nasi believed “most definitely” that what she witnessed through Shen Yun was the revival of traditional Chinese culture.
