I was disappointed and felt duped by this show's ads. It was billed as an experience of 5000 years of Chinese culture, but it turned out to be a thinly veiled propaganda piece for the Falun Dafa sect. I was offended that there was a palpable political undertone to the show, and felt that the promoters and the show's website were intentionally misleading by not mentioning this.(After the show, I read reviews online to see if I were the only person with this impression but was relieved to see that many others felt the same way.)
As far as the performance itself, the costume colors and choreography were interesting, but one quickly realizes that the dance pieces eventually get repetitive. The ads and promotional materials mention acrobatics and martial arts, but that was hardly on display. I was ready to leave before the second act.
I have rarely felt strongly enough to review a show, even when I didn't come out enthralled by it. This one was a complete let down.
