Playing to a sold-out crowd in Ottawa on Sunday, the Chinese New Year Spectacular, performed by the Divine Performing Arts company, dazzled a full house of 2,100 at the National Arts Centre, prompting a standing ovation.

Ontario’s Minister of Community and Social Services and Francophone Affairs, Madeleine Meilleur, had high praise for the performance.

“This show is just wonderful,” she exclaimed. “The costumes are outstanding, the choreography is wonderful—it’s a wonderful history of China through singing, dancing, and the costumes.

“I am so pleased I had the opportunity to see this show tonight as it represents very well the Chinese culture and traditions, and it’s just outstanding. There are no words to describe exactly what I saw tonight.”

Divine Performing Arts says its performances celebrate human dignity and positive values, aiming to provide an experience of consummate beauty and goodness.

“The music was wonderful; the singer had a beautiful, beautiful, golden voice.”

“The message is very clear,” Meilleur added. “You see through the dance, the choreography, the pain that Chinese people have gone through.”

Hosted in Ottawa by New Tang Dynasty TV and the Falun Dafa Association of Canada, the Spectacular will visit Europe, Asia, the U.S., and Australia before returning to Canada in April and May.
