Wherever you stand on the ongoing human-rights battle between the spiritual discipline's followers and the Chinese government, be prepared for a spot of melodramatic proselytizing along with your extravaganza, as it can be a little jarring. But still. There's a lot to enjoy in this spectacular show.
