The world's premier classical Chinese dance and music company performs a all-new show for 2017. It's a captivating and inspiring experience of authentic Chinese culture that cannot be found in China today. Thousands of years ago, China was known as the Land of the Divine. The ancient Chinese believed that their glorious civilization was a gift from the heavens. But that world was lost-until now. Shen Yun brings this world to life in one grand, breathtaking performance. Fascinating stories from 5,000 years of Chinese culture are told through the vivid athleticism and deep expressiveness of classical Chinese dance, one of the most demanding art forms in the world. A groundbreaking East-West orchestra captures the spirit of ancient China. Grand animated backdrops place the audience right inside the action. And Shen Yun's uplifting energy is something you can feel long after the curtain falls. "Extraordinary! It was exquisitely beautiful." -Cate Blanchett, Academy Award-winning actress
