Shen Yun Performing Arts, the world's premier classical Chinese dance and music companies, returns with a lavishly colorful and exhilarating show, all new for 2013. Shen Yun uses performing arts to present stories that bring to life the inner essence of China. This includes ancient legends, characters, and tales from history, and representative events from the modern world. In Shen Yun performances, themes like spiritual devotion, the benevolence of gods, good and evil, retribution, and the search for the meaning of life have appeared in dance stories and lyrics.
Shen Yun Performing Arts presents classical Chinese dance, song, and music with choreography ranging from grand processions to legions of thunderous drums, with gorgeously costumed dancers moving in synchronized patterns.
Spectacular visuals take you to another world, with landscapes and ancient buildings appearing on beautiful animated backdrops. Music seamlessly combines the best of the East and West, giving each performance an unmistakable flair.
Performance Timing: Act I - 70 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Act II - 65 min.
