SHEN YUN. For Chinese, the words evoke a sense of wonder, magic, and the divine. Audiences who have seen it recall the experience of a lifetime – a moment so powerfully beautiful it touches the soul.

For 5,000 years in China, culture was heralded as a divine gift. Its glory inspired countless artists and poets, until this heritage was nearly lost…

Based in New York, Shen Yun Performing Arts seeks to revive this once-majestic tradition. Every year it creates new performances that reflect a beautiful heritage and enrich the lives of audiences in powerful, lasting ways.

Discover fantastically rich culture of classical China brought to life in brilliantly choreographed dance and mesmerising, all-original orchestral compositions. Magnificently costumed dancers – the world’s elite – move in poetic arrangements that evoke pastoral beauty, imperial drama, and the glory of an ancient civilisation.

This April, discover what art was meant to be. Discover Shen Yun.
