    Reporters Without Borders said in it’s 2005 special report titled “Xinhua: the world’s biggest propaganda agency”, that “Xinhua remains the voice of the sole party”, “particularly during the SARS epidemic, Xinhua has for last few months been putting out news reports embarrassing to the government, but they are designed to fool the international community, since they are not published in Chinese.”

Divine Performing Arts European Tour Opens in Frankfurt Germany

Posted by Author on February 22, 2009

By Maria Zheng, Epoch Times Staff, Feb 21, 2009 –

FRANKFURT, Germany— The large auditorium of Frankfurt’s Jahrhunderthalle (Century Hall) gives the feeling of stepping out-of-doors. The Jahrhunderthalle, with its distinct white dome, was the venue for the opening show by the New York-based Divine Performance Arts (DPA) 2009 World Tour, playing in Frankfurt Feb. 21 to 22.

Before the curtain opened, a long line of people waited to get tickets. More than 80 percent of the seats had already been sold, beginning months before opening night, and Sunday’s show is almost sold out. One could feel the excitement as theatergoers waited to buy last-minute tickets or to enter the hall.

Two members of the audience had won their tickets through a raffle by the Rheinischen Zeitung (the Rhenish Newspaper). They had also read in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Frankfurt General Newspaper, also known as F.A.Z.) about interference by the Chinese Consulate, which had tried to block DPA from performing in Frankfurt. For information about the interference see

Undeterred by the Chinese Consulate’s attempted interference, the two looked forward to the show with high anticipation: “We searched the Internet about the performance and were delighted about what we read. The descriptions are so great and the costumes so dazzling that nothing could stop us from seeing that show,” one of them said.

Another theatergoer, standing in the long line at the box office and holding a flyer about the DPA show, said, “I want to see the actual performance on stage because of the description [in the flyer]. I want to personally experience what I have read. And I’m so glad that there are so many people in the audience despite the depression.”
