An excerpt by Daniel Hathaway
“…But the principal bow goes to David Shimotakahara, who marshalled multiple dancers (both professional and amateur), soloists, and the children’s chorus into a well-integrated whole, giving everyone meaningful things to do. And the expressive unison movements he assigned to the more experienced dancers were executed with precision.
The capacity audience loved this production, as well they should. The ovation was tremendous, and even the curtain calls were perfectly choreographed.”
