‘This is fantastic,’ Says Berkeley Physics Professor

“[The show] is awesome. My mom wanted to see it so it’s just fantastic. We have heard about this for a few years and we haven’t been able to get to the show, so this is fantastic.”

“The pageantry, the color and the music and the uniform movements… And of course it has the traditional stories behind a very ancient culture. … The Han Dynasty, the Tang Dynasty, and Buddhist culture presented in an art-based way is fantastic.”

“I feel like I am being transported back in time. It’s really what you wanted, you want to experience not 2018 but two-thousand years ago.”

“My wife and my kids have seen it before and they were very excited about it. I should say that one thing I was not expecting is the animation and it is pretty nice. It goes from 2D to 3D back and forth. I guess they have a patent for that as well. I thought that was very nicely done. And the melding of the Western instruments with Chinese instruments, I thought that was very nicely done. This is absolutely worth it. It’s beautiful.”
