The Beauty of Divine Beings Dancing
The gong resounds, the curtain opens, and a heavenly scene is before you. Fairies emerge from a sea of billowing clouds. Mongolians ride on horseback across grasslands as vast as the sky. Classic stories of love, loss, humor, and heroic deeds come to life. You will be amazed by how vibrant, exciting, and profound classical Chinese culture can be.
Shen Yun is a brilliant artistic revival and celebration of China’s rich cultural heritage.
Each performance consists of about 20 pieces, quickly moving from one legend, region, or dynasty to the next. Themes range from the delicate elegance of Tang court ladies to the battlefield heroics of valiant generals, from the timeless philosophical works of Lao-Tzu to spectacular scenes of magical realms. Some pieces also touch upon today’s China, shedding light on the oppression many experience for their spiritual beliefs, such as Falun Dafa. These tales of courage are often what audience members find the most touching and uplifting.
