Shen Yun Performing Arts Reviews

A UNIQUE SHOW, A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
i went to see ShenYun twice because they have a new production each year. i have never seen a show like this before. ShenYun has the visual part which are the dazzling costumes, animated backdrop and synchronized movements. it also has the invisible part that is the righteous values and education components embedded in each story dance. Basically, everyone can pick something they like from the show, whether it is the dance, live music, costumes or the stories from ancient to contemporary China. ShenYun is like a time machine that brings me back to different time and space!

I LOVE SHEN YUN
I find this show to be a truly remarkable production. I have watched it several years in a row and find it amazing that each year they create a whole new show. The technical abilities of the dancers in Shen Yun is far beyond any other Chinese dance performance I have seen. Their ability to dance in perfect synchronization just blows my mind. How do they do it? To make all the costumes is its self amazing. Such delicate fabric has to be hand sewn. They are truly gorgeous. As a musician that loves classical music I am transfixed by the way they have blended Chinese and western instruments in such a flawless fusion to create a new sound. It is like whole new way to express music that is at once contemporary yet ancient. The scenes from contemporary China are so moving. Such great traditions have been lost to the communist rule. I am always left with a great sense of hope for not only China but all of humanity after seeing Shen Yun. I say its a must see show

6 YEARS IN A ROW, ENJOYABLE, INSPIRING, AND EDUCATIONAL
I have seen this shows 6 times, and I brought my family to the show 5 times. Just check those pictures, those backdrop, the dancers' movement and facial expression, the beauty is stunning, and the culture they presented is inspiring. No group can present something as pure and as sincere as this group.

WORTHY PERFORMANCE; RARE GEM FROM THE US
I have been hearing about Shen Yun for quite a few years now. As a fan of Cate Blanchett, when I realized she took her entire family to see the show, I thought this show must really be something. I was watching Lord of the Rings reruns and I thought, "Hey, she watched Shen Yun!" At last, I convinced my husband to go see this; I am so glad I did. All I can say is that you must watch it at least once to get the full experience. I heard afterwards this show isn't allowed in China. I can see why... because they are not fake like everything else the communist does. This show is Made in the USA, and not Made in China. I am sold.

MAGNIFICENT AND UNIQUE
It's a show I have never seen before, considering the full-stage large digital animation backdrop- it extends the stage not only to high above the heaven, but also transport me back to thousands of years ago. Impressively beautiful !

Saw the performance last year in Seattle—very, very well done. Top notch in every respect. A genuine glimpse into China's ancient culture.

SHEN YUN IS AWE-INSPIRING
I have seen this show three times in Seattle, and am returning to see Shen Yun again this year. Each year there are new dances and the backgrounds just keep getting better and better. I have never been disappointed. It is quite uplifting to see all the beauty and colors presented in the show, especially when the days are grey and rainy outside, it is a breath of spring in winter and I always come out with new inspiration and my spirits uplifted! I would definitely recommend to someone planning a great night out in Seattle.
