Duped into paying to watch propaganda,
Jan 24, 2014
reviewer: from Vancouver, British Columbia
Not worth $. Misleading ads: it's sponsored by Falun Dafa. Despite my belief in the value of freedom of religion, the overwhelming impression made on me was I was duped into paying to watch propaganda. Feeling deceived does not make one more sympathetic to their cause. Were the glowing reviews in the ads genuine? Was the constant smile plastered on the face of the white emcee genuine? Maybe his fixed smile was natural, which would make it creepy. Neon costumes & cartoony video backdrop added to the artificiality. Soprano's ├╝ber wide vibrato & proselytising lyrics were cringe-worthy. The emcee popped onto stage to say something like: Wasn't that wonderful? We need an encore from her! Another uncomfortable point, he asked the audience to repeat in Chinese, "I love Shen Yun." Dance was OK in a repetitive & Disney-esque way & at least they had a live orchestra, but not worth $. Unless you wanted to pay to experience an evangelical & tacky blend of art/politics/religion. January 2014

Magnificent and unique,
Nov 18, 2013
reviewer: from Vancouver, British Columbia
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 !

The Best Show in the World!,
May 02, 2013
reviewer: from Peoria, Illinois
I have seen this show several times, since they develop totally new programs every year. I would say it's the best show I have ever seen! It's just so exciting, inspiring, and also educational. I like it.

I just watched it in San Francisco today. You have to go to the theatre by yourself to feel its magnificence.

Shen Yun is awe-inspiring,
Mar 22, 2013
reviewer: from Seattle, Washington
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.
