SACRAMENTO, Calif.—As the weather started to heat up this weekend in California’s central valley, the Shen Yun Performing Arts tour arrived in town bringing with it a refreshing show filled with classical Chinese dance and music from the world’s premier company.
Audience members flocked to Sacramento’s Community Center Theater as temperatures outside approached 100 degrees, and were delighted to discover what people all over the world have been talking about.
“The show is very great and colorful, and the music is very pleasant,” said Angelica, a business analyst.
She really enjoyed the interplay of the performers on stage with the dazzling backdrops. “Their outfits are very nice, and the color of the scenes and the decorations really matched the dances, and gives you the feeling that you are right there,” she added.
Although Angelica had never experienced classical Chinese dance before, she mentioned that she would return to see the show again.
Shen Yun graced the stage of the Community Center Theater back in January, and returned to the city due to the popularity of the show. The theater is part of the Sacramento Convention Center Complex in downtown Sacramento, which also houses a 134,000-square-foot convention center, the Memorial Auditorium, and The Jean Runyon Little Theater.
Yuri, who came with Angelica, was especially fascinated with the flow of the piece presented on stage.
“Each piece is different. It starts kind of similar but then it transforms into something else. I like that transformation,” Yuri commented.
The Shen Yun New York Company is traveling along the West Coast having already made stops in Los Angeles and San Diego. It plays two shows in Sacramento this weekend, followed by one performance in San Jose on Wednesday, and finally arriving in San Francisco next weekend for four additional shows at the War Memorial Opera House.
