Pros: pretty costumes

Cons: Deceptive show, pricey, strong propraganda message, too long, negative images

I went there last year and do not recommend going there. This show is deceptive and low quality.\r

I agree with some of the other negative criticisms. I was expecting something more along the lines of a show you'd see in China or Cirque de Sole here in the states. This was no where close. Overall, it felt like a low budget

Pros: Well done high quality production, beautiful costumes, talented dancers, profound music

My father and I watched the last Splendor production on Saturday. It was certainly the most entrancing Chinese performance I've ever seen, and I daresay its vivid digital backdrop is unprecedented. My father, a Chinese immigrant born

Pros: depicted a china free of communism

Cons: wish we could get it on DVD

We attended the NY production 02/09 in NY (Radiocity). Glad we paid discount $58 with half off the second ticket. Silly dialogues from commentators, cheesy "tech digital" background, bad performances, costumes seem to be from Chinatown,
