Heavenly maidens, brave warriors, mischievous monks, and, yes, even a flying pig! China’s 5,000 years of uninterrupted history has yielded an endless treasure trove of legends, myths, and literary classics. These stories come to life in vivid detail through Shen Yun’s awe-inspiring performances. Let Shen Yun take you on an extraordinary journey spanning from the origins of Chinese civilization through the height of the Tang and Song dynasties all the way to the modern day. It’s a performance that not only entertains, but more broadly, educates and inspires.
Based in New York, Shen Yun has become the world’s premier classical Chinese dance company and a global, cultural sensation, reviving the authentic culture of China that was once almost lost. And now, after enchanting royals in London, performing for packed houses across Asia, and wowing a sold-out audience at Lincoln Center last season, Shen Yun is returning to the Lincoln Center stage with an entirely new program for 2014!
