SHEN YUN - A Cultural Treasure Brought To The Stage
For 5,000 years, the Middle Kingdom has been home to an unparalleled legacy of heroes, legends, and virtues that continue to resonate around the globe.
Shen Yun is the first theater company to present classical Chinese dance to the world on a large scale. It also features the only orchestra to combine both Western and Chinese instruments as its permanent members. Shen Yun has taken the globe by storm, performing in over 100 cities. Its January shows at New York Lincoln Center were sold out.
The show is a celebration of traditional Chinese culture as it was meant to be experienced-a study in grace, wisdom, and virtues distilled from millennia of civilization.
With mesmerizing choreography, colorful costumes, stunning animated backdrops, and tremendous athleticism, Shen Yun takes the audience on a journey through time and space to ancient lands, mountain peaks, and even heavenly paradises.
"If heaven is the way we saw it tonight, count me in," said Academy Award-nominated producer Nathaniel Kahn after seeing Shen Yun.
Ancient Chinese artists cultivated virtue, believing that to create true art worthy of the heavens, there must first be inner purity. Today, Shen Yun's artists follow this noble tradition. The result is a performance of consummate beauty. It is a show that nourishes the soul.
Shen Yun will perform at San Francisco Orpheum Theatre March 20-24. For more, visit: ShenYun2013.0rg or call 1-888-633-6999.
