A Shen Yun Performing Arts Chinese dance and music concert is both grand and delicate. One minute a group of bold and exuberant warriors is brandishing weapons as they tumble across the stage, and the next, a group of maidens is elegantly and gracefully re-enacting an age-old legend. Shen Yun, based in New York, puts 100 dancers and musicians onstage in a mix of opera, martial arts and classical Chinese dance with brilliantly colored costumes and dazzling sets. Built on 5,000-year-old traditions and styles, Shen Yun is the most authentic presentation of Chinese performing arts outside of China. Various times daily including 7:30 p.m. December 26. Through January 1.
Wed., Dec. 26; Tue., Jan. 1, 2012
