Volvo Executive: ‘Shen Yun brings us back to the important things in life’

“It’s very good. It’s very colourful, very well organized, very well orchestrated. Beautiful music! Overall, it’s very dazzling.”

“I liked very much the harmony, the synchronization of the dancers, and the dramatic plots. … There is loyalty, justice. I think there are many beautiful values that are conveyed in the different stories.”

“Indeed, I think it is good because it brings us back to the source, to the important things in life. Especially in Western culture, we live at a very frantic pace. I think it brings us back to simplicity, to the simple things in life, to focus on ourselves, on important things in life instead of always running.”

“I liked very much the harmony with the digital backdrops, the combination of the visual elements—all this was very good. I really liked that is was so colourful, very peaceful. What is also interesting is that it brings everything back to the history of 5,000 years of China. So I think there’s a beautiful historical background.”

The orchestra is good and the Chinese instruments make a big difference. It gives a special touch to the orchestra. It gives an oriental flavour.”

“[The erhu] is a very nice instrument. I heard it before but now I know it’s called an erhu. For two strings, it is impressive to see the variety and spectrum of the harmonies of this instrument. It was very good.”
