STOCKHOLM, Sweden—Shen Yun Performing Arts' first show on Wednesday, March 18, in Stockholm performed before a highly appreciative audience, in this picturesque old theater, built in 1892. Both young and old from all walks of life had come to see Shen Yun's unique portrayal of Chinese traditional culture.

The Epoch Times had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Wensheim, a Swedish lady from the audience with many strings to her bow.

Mrs. Wensheim lives in Stockholm and is a well-known director of music and a pianist. She is the sixth generation in a family of church musicians. She has also currently been working as a conductor and choir leader.

Mrs. Wensheim was impressed—as well as surprised—by Shen Yun´s performance, which she saw for the first time.

“I think this is fantastic, a feast for all senses. It really was, visually and everything. It was really something to remember.

“I have never seen a performance like this before. I had seen some pictures as well as a short video of what it is about. But you cannot imagine, not really, until you sit there—and that was wonderful.

"The spirit that permeates everything, like the lyrics in the songs—they tell about goodness and love, humanity, and compassion. That is touching. The tenor solo singer had an immense voice.

"I liked very much the part with the Chinese instrument, the erhu. It was fantastic to listen to. And I feel happy, very happy, after seeing the show," said Mrs. Wensheim.
