Shen Yun Performing Arts

Some 5,000 years of Chinese culture take center stage during the all-new show by Shen Yun Performing Arts. Retelling myths, legends and literary tales, the classical Chinese dancers float, leap and bound across the stage accompanied by the Shen Yun Orchestra, a unique mix of traditional Chinese and modern Western instrumentation. Stories include Mulan (disguised as a male, a daughter takes her father’s place at war). Grand and impressive, Shen Yun is unrivaled in its sweeping pageantry.
