Teacher Says, ‘I Sat There In Absolute Awe’ at Shen Yun

“I was absolutely blown away by it [Shen Yun]—my family very generously gave it to me as a Christmas present, so I was just so excited and I was definitely not disappointed. It was amazing—I found the colour spectacular, the costumes just amazing. The synchrony of the artists dance was just so creative and particularly it was lovely to see a live orchestra. … it’s just lovely, it’s just pure culture in its form.”

“I did enjoy seeing the lady on the stringed instrument [erhu] and the gentleman singing [bel canto style]—I felt it just added that extra culture—that extra zing to it.”

“It’s just magical, just amazing. I came with high expectations because of different things people have said to me. I’ve seen the ads on TV and all those wonderful things and I was just so keen to come along and I sat there in absolute awe for the whole performance.”
