LUDWIGSBURG, Germany—India native Mr. Vinod Talgeri was at the Forum am Schlosspark and took in the first Shen Yun performance on April 20. He had studied and earned an advanced degree in Germany.
He commented about the show, saying, "A superb artistic achievement—sheer perfection. I am enthralled."
Mr. Talgeri manages the Talgeri consulting firm, an independent business consulting company for European and Asian regions. He mainly performs outsourcing, management, IT, and engineering.
"I loved the show; multi-faceted and particularly worthwhile for Europeans to see what Chinese people would like to show the world but are forbidden to do so [by the ruling regime]."
The Shen Yun show presented stories through dance from ancient to modern China to the world's people.
"One gets the distinct impression of how things were in the past genuine—Chinese culture."
"Since all scenes are presented within about five minutes, one never gets bored. Everything is unique. I have never seen anything like it."
Mr. Talgeri will definitely recommend the performance to others as "something extraordinarily unique."
'This show is something completely unique'
Travel bureau owner Karawane Reisen, Peter Albrecht, was charmed by the Shen Yun presentation.
"My wife and I both liked the presentation—the colors, the high-class artistic level, the backdrops —simply superb. I had previously no conception of Chinese culture. This show is something completely unique."
Mrs. Albrecht scrutinized the details of the goings-on on the stage with her opera glasses and said: "The colors and the costumes were simply splendid—and the ladies danced so beautifully."
While observing through her opera glasses she looked again and again at the performers' facial expressions: "So many gorgeous looking girls and the young men, too," she commented with a smiling face.
Although the couple offers Chinese tours through their travel agency, they were unfamiliar with the Middle Kingdom. Since having seen the Shen Yun performance, they are eager to learn about it first hand.
