COMPLETE WASTE OF $600 (I DO NOT RECOMMEND THE SHOW.)

I feel like I got scammed by Shen Yun. I don't think I would've attended the show with my kid if I knew the show involved that much religious content. The advertisement of Shen Yun never showed any hints of a particular religion in advance. However, the show is specifically about one specific religion (Falun Dafa) and kept on insisting on its values, background and teachings. The yellow propaganda sign used by the dancers during the show which advertised Falun Dafa was very tacky aesthetically at the first sight of it and secondly it was again very inappropriate because there was no hint of Falun Dafa in the marketing materials of Shen Yun. Luring prospect audience in like this with disguised marketing materials is a fraudulent scheme. It is very disappointing and inappropriate. I feel like I got scammed by Shen Yun and wasted $600.

DISAPPOINTMENT.

The show was not like one piece that you watch from the beginning to the end on one breath (like for example cirque du soleil "O"). Two hosts after each dance number were so boring bringing all dynamics of this concert so down. The technical part of the show was also poor and outdated, may be 10 years ago this video projection of poor quality was great. The orchestra sound must be better - this is 2018 and they should use microphones to make a perfect sound to connect to the "show". There are some ridiculous dance numbers with cell phones and all these communist anti-propaganda. There is no leitmotif and logically developed direction - just chaos. And stage also looked poor because there were no decorations and they relied on this poor projection on a screen. Bottom line - we are very disappointed. Lost money and time. If you think that we are the only people who complain on this show, see "Shen Yun 2018 in south san francisco yelp"

SHEN YEN

This was a political show, boring, and the same thing over & over again. The costumes were beautiful, but that is it. I would not recommend this show to anyone. The reviews you see on their web site are fake. Don't waste your money.

DECEPTIVE MARKETING

I have seen great classical Chinese performances by other companies. I expected the same superb quality from Shen Yun, especially for the exorbitant price. Sadly, although I appreciated the instrumentalists and the costumes, most of the dances were unimpressive. The compulsory Falun Dafa propaganda spoiled the show. I have a bad feeling about who is profiting from the ticket sales.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

watched this back in Vancouver. It was not as advertised. I would call it a scam and hope everyone search for reviews before going to the show. total waste of money

BAD SHOW

The show was very disappointing. All the dances seemed the same. The anouncesr between the dances were so monotonous. The show was slow moving and boring. Would not recommend it. People were leaving in the middle.

SHEN YUN

We were extremely disappointed. This show is NOT about Chinese performing arts, it's about a hidden political and religious agenda that is forced on the audience. My wife and I will never see this show again nor will we ever suggest others to go.
