March 19, 2018

“[I liked the performance] very much, very much. It had a good story to it and a reality. It was a pleasure to be here.”

“With the difference between the East and West, we’ve all still got the same values to go and keep the peace and the niceness between one another … and help one another get to heaven together and not just be one alone.”

“The message needs to be put out there, and this was a different way of doing it. It’s not done in a political way. It’s not done with staging, protesting, or anything like that. It’s brought through song and dance, and that is a language that can break through any barrier. Everybody understands it, and it really opens up your eyes and ears. …”

“The music was outstanding, and it was different because it wasn’t [just] the Western. … I’m familiar, of course, with the orchestra, but with the Chinese instrumentation that was added, it brought new knowledge and experiences. It was just outstanding.”

“It’s a story being told, and you’re put into that scene, and the music just makes it even that much more and brings your spirit into the story and wraps you around.”
