Thousands of years ago, China was known as the Land of the Divine. The ancient Chinese believed that their glorious civilization was a gift from the heavens. But that world was lost — until now. Shen Yun brings this world to life in a show that can't be seen in China today. Fascinating stories from 5,000 years of Chinese culture are told through the vivid athleticism and deep expressiveness of classical Chinese dance, one of the most demanding art forms in the world. A groundbreaking East-West orchestra captures the spirit of ancient China. Grand animated backdrops place the audience right inside the action. And Shen Yun's uplifting energy is something you can feel long after the curtain falls.
