Renowned economists Cheng Xiaoneng and He Qinglian praised the show as "marking a new era" and "a new, refreshing artistic form"
After watching the show, renowned economist He Qinglian praised the show, "The choreographers integrated their understanding of ancient music and dance after careful investigation and study, and presented the art in a new form to viewers through the costumes, music, dance, and integration with modern stage techniques."
Economist Cheng Xiaoneng pointed out, "People from mainland China are influenced by the CCP's party culture. Many Chinese people still remember the CCP music and songs after living for many years in other countries.
This show opens a new era and presents Chinese traditional culture without any trace of the CCP party culture. It is what people need now."
The performance company is composed of world class artists, including Ren Fengwu and Chen Yongjia, youth group champions in the recently held International Chinese Classic Dance Competition, and the third place winners Che Xinggao and Wu Xuntian. The lead dancers of the Mongolian and Korean dances are Wang Chunxue and Yi Hai, performers who won national awards in China.
The performers also include renowned soprano singer Ms. Bai Xue, erhu performer Qi Xiaochun, and two renowned soprano singers, Guan Guimin and Hong Ming.
