Shen Yun’s performance at the Boston Opera House was rescheduled from February 8 to the 11th due to a severe blizzard that forced road closures and travel restrictions. Many in the audience were deeply moved, even to tears.

[Jordan Montgomery, Composer, New England Conservatory of Music]:
"I really enjoyed the Yi people dance—it was incredible, the music and the choreography was incredible. But what really did it for me was the tourist sketch—I mean the bit. That actually made me cry, and it was amazing that it could make me cry just from dancing."

As a composer, Jordan appreciated the emotion conveyed through the Shen Yun Orchestra’s music.

[Jordan Montgomery, Composer, New England Conservatory of Music]:
"As a composer this has really been interesting to watch Chinese music and like get a feel for that, because it really–there's so much emotion in it, it was incredible. This has been such a great night for me, it's really lovely."

The Reillys are both retired—they had high praise for Shen Yun.

[Gerald Reilly, Retired University Psychology Lecturer]:
"… movement of the people across the stage and how they seemed to float around the stage, it was really—really was an incredible show."

[Francis Reilly, Retired Alcohol and Drug abuse Therapist]:
"I thought it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my whole life."

Following on from their five performances at the Boston Opera House, Shen Yun will hold three performances in the city of Waterbury, Connecticut.
