About Shen Yun
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Shen Yun’s unique artistic vision expands theatrical experience into a multi-dimensional, inspiring journey through one of humanity’s greatest treasures - the five millennia of traditional Chinese culture.
This epic production immerses you in stories reaching back to the most distant past. You’ll explore realms even beyond our visible world. Featuring one of the world’s oldest art forms - classical Chinese dance - along with patented scenographical eﬀects and all-original orchestral works, Shen Yun opens a portal to a civilization of enchanting beauty and enlightening wisdom.
Enter a world where philosophers and poets alike sought harmony with the Dao, or 'Way,' of the universe. Where maidens danced with ethereal grace and generals fought with explosive athleticism. Where timeless tales of valor and virtue were born. Where heaven and earth intersected, and miracles came into being.
Take an enlightening journey through 5,000 years, book now!
'Absolutely the No. 1 show in the world - no other company or any style can match this.'
Kenn Wells, former lead dancer of the English National Ballet
'Five stars! I have reviewed about 4,000 shows since 1942, none can compare to what I saw tonight.'
Richard Connema, Broadway critic
