Mr. Toney was very interested in the dancing, noting it was different from ballet. He thought the show was very rich in color and the movements were very beautiful. "I also like the stories conveyed by the lyrics of the songs and the backdrop."
St. Vincent and The Grenadines consul Eleen Ackie was very impressed by the resounding voice of Tenor Hong Ming. "His song was very good and I was really touched," she said.

I have really enjoyed the show so far and can't wait to see the last half."
Mr. Toney added that the positive values that were displayed in the show were very important. "The show portrayed some universal values, sending very positive messages. For example, one number told us that one should try to be a better man and everyone can achieve that. I like this."'
