Every Child Should See Chinese Spectacular, Says Ontario MPP

Posted by Author on January 17, 2008

By Matthew Hildebrand, Epoch Times Ottawa Staff, Jan 15, 2008-Ontario MPP Lisa MacLeod

The Chinese New Year Spectacular , presented by Divine Performing Arts, drew a full house and a standing ovation at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa last night.

Among the dignitaries who took in the show was Ontario Member of Provincial Parliament Lisa MacLeod, who found special meaning in the lyrics of one of the songs.

“What an inspiring message to start the New Year with, which is truth—when you find it—means renewal, and I think that that’s a great message for a politician to hear, but I wish every kid in Ontario could see this display. It’s absolutely wonderful.”

MacLeod said she especially found one line in the song to be “most inspiring.”

“If I can ever find the line translated into English again, I would really appreciate it, because it’s absolutely amazing,” said MacLeod. “And it is a real phrase that I think impacts everyone’s life, regardless of ethnicity, gender, culture, whatever—I think it’s just a really nice message to have.”

Would she like to come back?

“I have a small child and I can’t wait to bring her next year when she’s old enough to attend,” she said. “I think it’s just amazing. The dancers, the music, it’s something that every child should see. It’s something that if anyone has the opportunity to see it, should. It’s a great message—a great message for truth, divinity, and sense of purpose.”

The depiction of principles through artistic performance was also remarkable, MacLeod said.

“To do it through artistic means—I think it must be one of the most wonderful skills to have … To see people be able to speak about truth and sense of purpose through music and through dance and other artistic means, it’s very wonderful. I congratulate the organizers and I congratulate those participating in the show.”

“I think that the Chinese-Canadian community must be very proud of this Spectacular New Year special.”
