In ancient times, China was known as the Land of the Divine and the world was full of magic and miracles. Everyone, from the emperors to the common people, believed that their culture was a divine gift. They lived in harmony with the universe and saw a connection among all things. Authentic Chinese culture carried these principles for thousands of years--until it was lost.
SHEN YUN INVITES YOU to visit this lost civilization. To make the journey possible, Shen Yun had to push the boundaries of performing arts. Shen Yun combines ancient dance with technological innovations, and historically authentic costumes with breathtaking animated backdrops. Shen Yun lets classical Chinese dance do the storytelling, and share with you the beautifully diverse worlds of ethnic and folk traditions. Filled with an enchanting orchestral sound, this is a stunning visual and emotional experience you won’t find anywhere else.
Now Shen Yun opens the gates to the lost civilization, where ancient myths and legends come to life, where dance and music connect Heaven and Earth. With the richly expressive art of classical Chinese dance, ground-breaking musical compositions, and cutting-edge, interactive stage effects, Shen Yun is leaving millions around the world in awe.
The Shen Yun orchestra combines the spirit and distinctiveness of Chinese music with the precision and grandeur of the Western symphony orchestra. The result – one refreshing sound in perfect synchronization with the power and beauty of classical Chinese dance – a tremendous energy leaving audiences uplifted and inspired.
