(Clearwisdom.net) "Immortal beings assemble in heaven to exchange greetings with one another. Winged horses suddenly interrupt the gathering however, heralding the arrival of a divine visitor from beyond the clouds. The hallowed visitor invites the multitude to descend to the earth with him. Those who accept the summons are sent off joyously in a grand farewell." This prehistoric scene is portrayed in the first piece, "Descent of the Celestial Kings" in Holiday Wonders. Many audience members said that this piece was most impressive and inspiring to them.
June Ptrozanie is a nurse from New Jersey. She said, "My favored piece was 'Descent of the Celestial Kings' because it gave me a sense of heaven and I felt that I also came from there."
"I also liked the solo performance of the singers because the lyrics were very touching and inspired me to realize that belief is very important. I also liked 'Drummers of the Tang Court' and all those dancing pieces. In fact, I liked every piece." Ptrozanie added.
David Clark is an accountant in New York City and attended the Holiday Wonders last year. He said that the show, especially the first piece "Descent of the Celestial Kings," was very inspiring. He also liked "Ladies of Manchu Court" for its splendid costume and graceful dancing movement.
