Shen Yun 2013
Presented by Upstate New York Falun Dafa Association, Shen Yun brings to life 5,000 years of Chinese civilization through classical Chinese dance and music in an exhilarating show you will never forget.
Shen Yun captures the spirit of a culture long lost. The show moves quickly through regions, dynasties and legends. Ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with color and energy. Tremendous athleticism, thunderous battle drums and masterful vocalists are all set to animated backdrops that transport you to another world.
It is a grand production with nearly 100 artists, 400 costumes and the only orchestra in the world masterfully blending two of the world’s greatest classical music traditions, Chinese and Western, into one glorious sound as permanent members.
Shen Yun is the first company to present classical Chinese dance to the world on a large scale and it has taken the globe by storm, performing in over 100 cities. Shows in top venues, like New York's Lincoln Center, are sold out. Every year, Shen Yun Performing Arts unveils an entirely new lineup of dances, songs, and musical scores that offers an exhilarating world-class production on a grand scale.
Think of it as a journey into a long-lost world you cannot see anywhere else-from ancient legends to heavenly palaces to the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom to modern-day human rights epics such as that of Falun Dafa. You cannot even find a show like this in China, where this ancient heritage has been destroyed. But now you can experience it live on stage.
Find out why artists and theatergoers around the world are calling Shen Yun "BREATHTAKING," "MESMERIZING," "A MIRACLE" and "INSPIRING." Allow yourself to be taken away to distant lands and ancient legends. See Shen Yun and discover how you, too, can be inspired.
