Re: “Shen Yun Cancels Richmond Show

This Shen Yun performance has some very beautiful and touching scenes which deeply moved my heart. However, there were some very disturbing scenes as well. Particularily the beating of foreign tourists taking pictures in China by "hammer & sickle" communistists and another scene of righteous revenge as an earthquake distroyed Tiannimein Square and the Forbidden City which collapses beneath the surface. The four featured songs by soloists were absolutely terrible and there were no traditional Chinese songs presented. The underlying theme to the show was the promotion of Falun Gong was offensive to my Chinese wife, and I suspect to all Chinese Nationalists whom attended this San Francisco Show. The tickets were unduly expensive for a show whose objective was to promote a regilious point of view. I wouldn't recommend this show to anyone seeking to see a original Chinese Culture Show which advertises just that as their draw to admission. The show is advertised as a show giving a taste of Chinese Culture over 5,000 years. Sorry, but you will be sadly disappointed.
