The opera was absolutely great. I truly enjoyed the performance as the last time I saw a Chinese Opera was as a child with my Grandmother in Los Angeles Chinatown. I brought my two cousins as my guests and they were delighted to have shared the experience.
It was a delightful performance. A very touching tale from the days when virtue and compassion were something to die for. The costumes were amazing. The performers articulated the words very clearly. The music was so energetic. We had a great time!
Thank you so much for your flexibility, and especially the amazing show. Everybody was great,, from the ticket table to the actresses and actors, to the band. Very well done.
I had a great time last night. The performance was wonderful and the storyline was exciting. I vaguely remember going to see live performances in Chinatown as a child, but this was way cool. Please consider bringing more of this wonderful art form to the South Bay.
This was an outstanding experience!!! The theatrical performance was nothing less than superb! Beautiful emotion, dance, acrobatics and writing. I only wish I could've stood and applauded like I wanted to from the front row. And yes, the tickets literally placed me and my wife in the front row. I was so surprised that I had to check with the Will Call folks a second time to be sure I wasn't reading the ticket marker wrong. Our hosts were so very kind and accommodating. The venue was nostalgic and the local restaurants nearby were quaint and comforting. Thank you for a beautiful evening!
Amazing but traditional performance originally from China
It was great! We really enjoyed it!
Great show, glad we attended.
Great experience! My first time seeing Chinese opera and I loved the music playing live, the colorful costumes, voices and acting!!! Thanks for this opportunity!
Awesome performance by actresses, actors, and band. Incredible job. Thank you.
Wonderful opera and costumes
IT WAS FANTASTIC.WORTH THE 2 HOURS DRIVE FROM THE VALLEY.
I also attended, row yellow O, noticed I wasn't listed as attending. Costumes were quite authentic and elaborate.
Top notch performances!
It was a fantastic show! I totally enjoyed it!
It was our first experience with the Chinese Opera and we had no idea what to expect. We found the opera to be very entertaining and the actors and singing was so emotional. We loved the story of Cheng Ying and his unwavering commitment and integrity. I know this is a very old story, but it is so important in today's life. Young people need to be exposed to that kind of honor and taking responsibility for your decisions in a world of "it's not my fault" or "I did it, but I am not responsible."
Keep up the good work! Thank you again.
