Bill Armbruster, a freelance reporter, was on hand to witness the grand display of China's 5,000 years of history to the present.
“I think it's fantastic, the music, the dancing, the sets—all tremendous,” he said. “I have so much admiration for all the performers and the people involved in the show, as well as the orchestra and the composers.”
Mr. Armbruster especially liked the dance Wu Song Battles the Tiger, a tale from the classic novel Outlaws of the Marsh. Wu Song became a hero after defeating a ferocious tiger with his bare hands to save a village terrorized by the beast.
The reporter also commented on Shen Yun’s positive message, and saw “values of compassion and tolerance,” he said.
“This is what we need more of, all over the world and not just in China and not just here—but everywhere because we have a world with so many problems, so much hatred," he added. "It's not good.”
Shen Yun seeks to revive mankind's divinely-bestowed heritage and will perform in over 100 cities worldwide in its 2010 tour. This is the second weekend Shen Yun will perform in New York’s iconic Radio City Music Hall.
“I feel very impressed. I feel joy. I've never seen such talented people perform,” Mr. Armbruster concluded.
