Shen Yun Soprano’s Message ‘Really Rang True’

February 25, 2018

“I love it! I think it’s amazing to have something where you go from a projection to something live. We are [sitting] pretty close. I can see all the facial expressions, so when I can see the facial expressions, I can really hear the stories through the dance.”

“I didn’t even realize there was a live orchestra until I sat up a little bit and I could see the violin moving and I went, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s live!’ It just sounded so perfect.”

“As a soprano myself, I can tell you it is very hard to reach some of the notes she had and I’m blown out of the water! I was just listening to her, and I could hear the technique, and I could hear the pride in her voice of her culture and how she portrayed [it] and even though I couldn’t understand the words … (I had to read the projections), I could still hear how strongly she felt … the message.”

“When [the soprano sang] that, although our cultures are different, we are the same inside, it really rang true. And especially with what is happening in the world right now, when people are like, ‘This culture is wrong and this culture is wrong.’ Nothing is wrong; it’s just different. It’s just beautiful.”
