PHOENIX—The final Shen Yun Performing Arts 2009 World Tour performance on March 28, in Phoenix was met with a standing ovation and praise.

Mr. Pleasa, who works in aerospace, was highly impressed with the show saying: “The show was fantastic, one of a kind, inspirational, exciting, extremely well done. Excellent stage performance. I cannot say enough about it.

"There were four or five [ways] in which I think this show was magnificent. I think the spiritual part was one of the best. We were with several people from different cultures, and everyone found inspiration in the spiritual part for very personal reasons. It was one of hope, freedom, and goodness.

“The performance was magnificent in that there was virtue. … In so many different areas the dance performance, the choreography, the precision of the choreography was unparalleled. I don't think I have every seen anything quite like it. Some of the dance moves I have never see before, and, in fact, some of them were so exceptional that I would not of thought them possible. Also the costumes …. and the stories that went with all of the dances.

“I loved the two string [erhu]. It sounded beautiful, it got right to my heart and past it.”

His acquaintance, Mr. Noel, also in aerospace as well as medical, scientific, and industrial technology, said, “I love everything. I love the costumes, the performance, the singing, the orchestra—everything.

"Spirituality and science mix together perfectly for me. I think one supports the other, and so as a scientist I have particular appreciation for the spiritual message, which is also presented in the show as a message about the whole cosmos. I like that part."
