Mrs. Pacheco, an interior designer who owns Cecilia Pacheco Interior Design, attended the performance with her husband Santiago.
“The dancers—unbelievable,” she said, adding special emphasis to the “unbelievable.” “I think we will come back next year. It was beautiful.”
“It was wonderful. I’d really like to come back again,” added Mr. Pacheco.
Shen Yun uses a wide range of beautiful art forms to help revive 5,000 years of divinely imparted Chinese culture. Along with music that blends delicate Chinese sounds with the precision of a Western orchestra, classically trained dancers, and a state-of-the-art digital backdrop, Shen Yun also incorporates all-original costumes designed specifically for each different set design.
The costumes struck the strongest chord with Mrs. Pacheco. “I loved the combination of all the dresses,” she said. “They were beautiful. The colors—gorgeous.”
The backdrop, in particular, stood out most to Mr. Pacheco. “The background was incredible,” he said.
“It was an inspiration for me,” Mrs. Pacheco concluded.
