"For me, it's an experiment," Yang said. "Just to show the traditional Chinese elements on stage would be copying what other people have done. So I have melded them with a more contemporary way of passing the message to the audience.

"At the same time, I don't feel the Chinese audience is ready for abstract things only," she said. "So there needs to be some traditional elements there as well. It is a mixture of traditional and abstract. I'm continuing to strive for a Chinese way of developing contemporary art and dance on stage," according to Playbill.

"The dance of the concubine and Xiang Yu was the most incredible part, with a very high standard. The story was traditional, but the interpretation is very unique as one of the many," Michale Kuonov, who work in satellite radio, said after watching the show.
