***What the media say about the show...

“The performances are inspired, the costumes and scenery enchanting, and the show as a whole a delight to experience. And besides its professional excellence, the Spectacular exudes a wonderfully positive karma. These beautiful, gifted people are expressing something that’s both pure and good.”
– Philadelphia Weekly

“Indisputably a spectacle… The women, meanwhile, make for a beautiful and haunting ensemble. They are as delicate as they are quick, and their skills include a nimble mastery of traditional talents, such as the classic fan dance... Some of the most jaw-dropping moments came from the thunderous intensity of a solo pianist named Yan Li.”
– Chicago Tribune

“It was spectacular—with gorgeous multi-colored costumes, athletic dancers, lovely traditional Chinese music and fantastic singers… Being the son of a Cantor, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for tenors, and hearing Chinese legendary tenor Guimin Guan… was the highlight of the evening for me. His voice is similar to the voice of the great Italian tenor Benjamino Gigli, with a glorious sweet upper range-and crystal clear diction, sung with great emotion.”
– DC Theatre Scene

***Arts Community Review...

“...a highly professional, well thought out and beautifully produced presentation! This is not only entertainment, but a valuable cross-over cultural event: a strong, gracious gesture toward international understanding, in an all-too-troubled world.”
– Donn B. Murphy, Ph.D., President, The National Theatre

“There are no words to say how much I enjoyed it… I’ve never seen a dance company like it. I’ve seen the National Ballet, I’ve seen the New York City Ballet, and they dance from technique. But these people dance from the heart, from the soul… I will come to every performance they ever have… I think everybody should see this. These performances are phenomenal.”
– Kory Tylor, former ballerina and owner, Dance Arts Centre

“I liked it a lot… It’s a completely new thing… Movements like the fans were fascinating, and gave me new ideas for possible future choreography... If you want to get an idea of a kind of art that’s completely different from ours, and to widen your horizons in the sense of Chinese singing and dancing, you should definitely come and see the show.”
– Gregor Hatala, Principal Dancer, Vienna State Opera Ballet

“The beauty and the elegance of it, the color, the drama, and the message. Just a delightful, delightful show. It brings beauty, loveliness, elegance, and a really wonderful message about peace and everyone being united in a loving brotherhood. I think that’s just really wonderful and special.”
– Scarlett Daine, Singer and actress

Mr. Connema, a critic for Talkin' Broadway magazine, said: “I probably have reviewed over three to four thousand shows since 1942. A lot of reviewers use stars, you know, 1 star, 2 stars, 3 stars, 4 stars, 5 stars… I will give this production 5 stars. That’s the top.”

“The dancers were absolutely fantastic … I found out that there was not only dancing in this but heart. You could feel that coming even from where I was sitting … Just a beautiful production I found that those backdrop scenes and the way it was projected and the way it comes out is absolutely fantastic.

“I’ve never seen anything like that. I’ve seen enough Broadway shows that still cannot compare to what I saw tonight. The best word to use was mind-blowing. And I watched around the audience and they all were so involved with everything going on.

“There’s movement between everything, even the narrators coming up, giving you a little insight and they move right into a dance… perfect!

In his article on the Shen Yun performance on TalkinBroadway.com, Mr. Connema raves about the show: "This production was truly spectacular in all senses of the world."

– Ted Kavanau, Founding Senior Producer of CNN

“Shen Yun Performing Arts has the best show.”
– Annette Lu, Vice President, Republic of China

“Spectacular, riveting... I’ve been to China, but I’ve never been treated to this level of sophisticated entertainment.”
– Larry O’Brien, Mayor of the City of Ottawa
