SHEN YUN Experience
"I probably have reviewed over three to four thousand shows since 1942." "I will give this production five stars. That's the top!" "I've never seen anything like that. I've seen enough Broadway shows that still cannot compare to what I saw tonight." - Richard Connema, Talkin' Broadway
Shen Yun Performing Arts will come to Washington, DC March 21 - April 1, 2012 with a brand new 2012 production, offering an exhilarating world-class production with grand scale performances that celebrate the pure excellence of classical Chinese dance and music inspired by the myths, legends, and divine beauty of 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture.
In 2011, Shen Yun performed in more than 100 cities across 20 countries worldwide. Weaving a wondrous story of heavenly realms, enchanted dreams, and the classic battle between good and evil, its breathtaking pageantry evokes themes of virtue, compassion, and courage. From ancient Buddhist and Taoist traditions to modern-day epic stories such as Falun Dafa, Shen Yun’s performances are rooted in China’s divinely-inspired culture. Following the tragic erosion of traditional Chinese culture under decades of communist rule, New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts endeavours to rediscover and further elevate this artistic and cultural excellence in the modern world.
Hosted in English and Chinese, Shen Yun features 100 exceptional artists, including winners of top international competitions in dance and music. You will be spellbound by stunning costumes, brilliant choreography and state-of-the-art dynamic backdrops, all complemented by a live orchestra combining Chinese and Western instruments in a masterful fusion. Savour this uplifting, entertaining, and educational experience charming and delighting viewers of all ages, Western and Asian alike.
“Lavish production, colourful sets, dazzling costumes, brilliant choreography, extravagantly beautiful!”

"A visually dazzling tour of 5,000 years of Chinese history and culture."
