SOMETHING YOU CAN'T MISS

I spent over 30 years back in China, never watched a show like this. It is soooo spectacular and unique! I have tears in my eyes when I watched it and my heart was so deeply touched by the music and story. It is something not only for Chinese, it is for everyone. Once you watch it, it is something unforgettable in your life time!

SHEN YUN VISUALLY SPECTACULAR, AWE-INSPIRING, BRILLIANT...

I just want to post a quote from the interview with Gary Behrmen, professor and Dean at St. Louis University, “I am breathless. It is visually spectacular, awe- inspiring, brilliant, and amazing. It is a planetary experience that there is hope in the air. What I have seen on this stage is that expression of hope. Having an event like this brings me hope that … all cultures can recreate the planet in a harmonious way.” Actually, there are thousands of enthusiastic reviews from media and audiences around the globe!

BEAUTIFUL, BROUGHT ME TO TEARS.

This is the most beautiful show I have ever seen. I was moved to tears more than once. The dancers are world class and the stories are very deep. Excellent show for children as well.

I LOVE THE DOUBLE STRING VIOLIN!

I love the live music Shen Yun orchestra presents, which is a combination of western and eastern musical instrument. I especially adore the double string violin.

BEAUTIFUL

With all of the uncertainty and difficulties faced in China right now, it is great to see such a celebration of Chinese heritage and true traditional culture. I loved seeing the show last year. Beauty and grandeur like I had never seen before.

OVER HYPED AND OVERLY RELIGIOUS

There were about 6-8 pure dancing routines, and I thought 2-3 of them were good. The rest seemed recycled from the other routines, with just different background and outfits. The costumes were bright and a huge positive. There were 6-8 "plays" (ballet/dance) of which 2-3 were entertaining. The rest were pretty basic ballet and nothing special. Almost ALL of the "plays" were religious based which was kind of a turn off. The music was good, but after 2+ hours of it, it became VERY monotonous. A singer came out and she literally sang the same song twice - back-to-back. Once was plenty. It was a religious song with about 50 words. There were two MCs: a young white male and a young Asian women. They were pretty flat and lame. It was VERY annoying that she would repeat everything in Chinese. We are not in China. I don't think it added to the show. It annoyed. If you really love ballet, you would like this show; Otherwise, the show was 3 stars at BEST.

FALUN DAFA PROPAGANDA WITH DECENT DANCING

2/3 of the show was decent Chinese dancing and 1/3 was "Falun Dafa Is Good" propaganda with Chinese police beating dissidents, a piano number singing how only repenters will be saved, and an ending where a heavenly tidal wave destroys communist China and the rapture- equivelant occurs in hokey cgi. That said I liked the scholars dance, the soldiers dance, and would watch another Miao dance even if the scientologists put it on. Overall mediocre for date night.
