Be mesmerized by Shen Yun - returning to Philadelphia for its 9thconsecutive year! Shen Yun Performing Arts brings majestic beauty and wonder to the stage, illuminating 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture.

Capturing the spirit of a culture almost lost, Shen Yun brings us dynasties and legends through uplifting dances and original musical scores. Classical, ethnic and folk dances are accompanied by a live orchestra that combines Western and Eastern instruments. And state-of-the-art digital backdrops transport audiences to a world where good triumphs over evil and Heaven and Earth exist together in harmony.

Shen Yun (meaning the "Beauty of Divine Beings Dancing") is the first international touring group to present classical Chinese dance to the world on a large scale. Each of the four touring companies includes nearly 100 artists and 400 hand-made costumes. The fast-moving show has new programming each year, consisting of twenty or more segments. The performances include dances from different regions and time periods of China, including the present, and several operatic vocal pieces.

Shen Yun has amazed audiences worldwide, performing in over 100 cities and five continents. Shows in top venues, such as New York's Lincoln Center, Palais des Congrès in Paris, and the London Coliseum have sold out.

Discover Shen Yun for yourself and find out why artists and theater lovers around the world are calling Shen Yun a 'miracle' and 'breathtaking.'
