In 2008 Divine Performing Arts dazzled over 600,000 live audience members in more than 60 cities on four continents. In 2007 Ottawa tickets sold out more than five weeks in advance. Weaving a wondrous story of heavenly realms, enchanting dreams, and the classic battle between good and evil, the breathtaking pageantry evokes themes of virtue, compassion, courage, and hope at the heart of Chinas divinely inspired culture from ancient Buddhist and Taoist traditions to modern-day epics such as Falun Dafa.
