Shen Yun 2013


Kicking off their 2013 world tour, Shen Yun brings to life 5,000 years of Chinese civilization through classical Chinese dance and music. The show captures the spirit of a culture long lost, moving quickly through regions, dynasties, and legends through ethnic and folk dances, athleticism, thunderous battle drums, and masterful vocalists. The production includes nearly 100 artists, 400 costumes, and an orchestra that blends two of the world's greatest classical music traditions, Chinese and Western.
