Event Description

An Unmatched Theatrical Experience

The grandeur of ancient Chinese civilization is brought to life by more than 80 artists, a full orchestra, and integrated digital backdrops. Packed with action, drama, beauty, and humor, Shen Yun takes the audience on a journey to experience the wisdom and virtues of a civilization 5,000 years in the making.

Shen Yun has just climbed the heights and found the excellence in everything. ...the grace of the dancers, the technique was just astonishing. The color palette of the costumes was absolutely to die for. Everything about it was moving, it was spiritually uplifting, the music was wonderful. ...It’s a once in a lifetime experience and you must not miss it!”   - Coral Drouyn, theater critic

Inspiring and Uplifting Energy

In ancient China, artists believed that to create true art, they must not only master their craft but also cultivate goodness and inner purity. Today, Shen Yun’s artists carry on this noble tradition, transforming each show into a night of inspiration.

"The Shen Yun performance is one of the most powerful, enlightening and spiritually uplifting things that has ever happened on earth! ...It changed people's lives."  - Michael McCarthy, musician

“This is the finest thing, the finest event I’ve ever been to in my life! I was in tears, because of the human spirit, the dignity, the power, the love, coming out of those people was astounding!"

— Jim Crill, producer
