New Tang Dynasty TV's 2007 Global Chinese New Year Spectacular show is the fourth of such shows since 2004. NTDTV has brought this show every year to the world's people at the beginning of each year.
Sadly to say, the representatives of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in foreign countries have not ceased to interfere with the production and presentation of NTDTV's Chinese New Year Spectacular. The CCP's emissaries have used a number of tactics to stop the productions, including threats or bribing of performers and sponsors throughout the world. This year, because of CCP pressure tactics, including threats and inducements, the South Korean government buckled under and forced the National Theatre of Korea in Seoul, where the show was supposed to open on January 6th, to be in violation of its contract with NTDTV. They cancelled the show three days before the opening date. This action resulted in strong condemnation by the Korean media, as well as created negative international sentiment.
What is it that the CCP fears about NTDTV? NTDTV has from its inception exposed the depravity of the CCP, including the continued suppression of human rights, freedom of speech and freedom of belief. NTDTV has also exposed the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, which no doubt have greatly angered some CCP officials.
NTDTV's Chinese New Year shows have become increasingly popular, despite the CCP's efforts to suppress and interfere with it. In 2004, the show was shown around the globe in five cities, in 2005 in seven cities, in 2006 in seventeen cities and in 2007 it is being shown in close to thirty cities. It was shown in well-known theatres, including the Kennedy Centre in Washington D.C., Radio City Music Hall in New York, and the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. Additionally, the 2006 NTDTV's Christmas show, "Holiday Wonders," brought out for the first time, gave nine performances on New York's Broadway and was highly praised by the media and audience. Showing traditional Chinese culture on one of the most famous stages in the world is a grand occasion and to be treasured by all Chinese people worldwide.
With "Myths and Legends" as its theme, the NTDTV Chinese New Year Spectacular brings to the world's people traditional Chinese culture as its best. Westerners highly praised the shows and Chinese people feel deep pride.
Yet, the CCP goes the opposite way, trying to deny people the right to see this fantastic show of Chinese culture.
NTDTV began the the recovery of the legitimate Chinese culture with its more than 5,000 years of tradition. It cuts out the malignant tumour that the CCP brought to the Chinese nation.
Whether the CCP expected this or not, it is history's choice and the CCP does not have the power to stop it, no matter what methods it uses.
