(Clearwisdom.net) On February 8, 2008, Mrs. Pan Shuhua, the founder and director of Tongqing Culture Art Center in New York, came to the Chinese New Year Splendor with three friends.
Mrs. Pan had seen the Christmas Holiday Wonders show by Divine Performing Arts earlier in the winter. She said, in comparison with Holiday Wonders, the New Year Splendor is even more splendid. She said the stage and background design of the Splendor were as good as any first-rate Broadway show. She liked the last number, "Victory Drums" very much, and said that Chinese people should be proud of the show.
Mrs. Pan also enjoyed the singing, especially the songs performed by tenor Hong Ming. She said the whole show gave people a peaceful feeling.
Pan Shuhua founded the Beijing Opera center 24 years ago. More than 60 Beijing Opera actors from the center hold three to four shows in New York every year.
