“Such Culture is Brought to Our Future”

“Absolutely superb...The performance was one of a kind,” said Dr. Michael Otto, the owner of a distribution company.

“I found that the Chinese culture somehow transmitted divine influence and the spiritual. This is expressed extremely well throughout the performance,” he said.

“I'm certain that in the past there existed a high culture, which we have somehow lost. It is great that now, such culture is brought to our future,” Dr. Otto said.

Unique Background-Stage Interactions

“What impressed me the most was the backdrop and the real people playing together in harmony,” said international model Norbert Bonanno.

“I just really loved it. This is probably one of the performances that I’ve ever seen and liked the most,” Ms. Bonanno continued.

“An Excess of Beauty and Poetry”

“Formidable... You offer people such an excess of beauty and poetry,” said music and art teacher Beatrijs van Hulle.

“When in art, you really want to be on a high level. You have to make connections with the past, with traditions, and from there build renewal and then it becomes really grand art,” Ms. van Hulle said.

“Life is more than the material things...The soul is what will remain.”

“I am just grateful there is such a company,” she added.

“A Phenomenal Night of Entertainment”

“A phenomenal night of entertainment!” said Peter Kemp, a journalist and an author. “It was a pleasure to watch.”

“Absolutely amazing... The use of the way the players and the film merge together, something I haven't seen before,” Mr. Kemp said.

“The Western and Eastern instruments just merged together beautifully,” he added.
