A sea of dancers in majestic costumes flow in perfect unison, waltzing amid a backdrop of an imperial China, which can only be found in legend. An army of drums rattles the stage as a live orchestra sets the tempo for the dancers.
This exhilarating show comes to New York’s Lincoln Center from April 18 until April 22. Shen Yun Performing Arts has toured the world spreading with it an incredible knowledge of Chinese culture that spans five centuries. The performance is more of a journey than anything, through music and dance, Shen Yun soars viewers through dynasties, regions and legends.
The production of each performance is equally as impressive as the show itself with 100 artists and 400 costumes. Shen Yun also has the only orchestra that has both Western and Chinese instruments.
