Haiti Consul General: Connecting the Past to the Present (Photo)
On January 30, 2008, the New Tang Dynasty Television Chinese New Year Splendor opened at its main venue-- Radio City Music Hall in New York. Officials from various countries' consulates attended the show as invited guests.
After the show concluded, a reporter met the Consul General of Haiti outside the theater. Consul General Felix Augstin said, "Fantastic! Fantastic! It's a show to remember. It connects the past to the present, and shows the 5,000 years of civilization in China. It's a very good show! I will come back again."
Officials of the Haiti Consulate in New York also attended the Spectacular. Consul General Felix Augstin (right) felt this was a very good performance. Vice consul Myriam Alesis (left) felt every performance was perfection.
Consul General Felix Augstin's favorite dance was "Drummers of the Tang Court. "It's a connection between your civilization and our civilization, so I think the drum was one of the most beautiful part of it. Both of the drums were great."
Vice-consul Myriam Alesis said, "I really enjoyed it. I like the costumes, they have a lot of colors, and I really enjoyed the show. The dances... I don't know, I feel every part was perfect. I really really enjoyed it."
