The China Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe has graced the boards of the Majestic Theatre with their stage extravaganza. Over the years, the troupe, which consists entirely of physically challenged artists, has taken their extraordinary performing art all over the world. Now visitors from around the world have come to them to enjoy a new work in the troupe's repertoire...It's their latest version of "My Dream."

The extravaganza opened with a sign language poem recital.

It was followed by "Thousand-Hand Buddhisattva", by far the troupe's most famous number to date. They spoke their minds with graceful movements backed by flowing melodies, although many of them are hearing impaired.

The night was packed with a variety of programs, from a vocal solo, then a duet... to Chinese and western musical instruments performing in harmony. The night was an affective arousal for audience members as well as a great challenge to the artists.
