I love Shen Yun,
Mar 19, 2013
reviewer: from Seattle, Washington
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

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

Deceptive marketing,
Feb 24, 2013
reviewer: from St Paul, Minnesota
I have seen great classical Chinese performances by other companies. I expected the same superb quality from Shen Yun, especially for the exorbitant price. Sadly, although I appreciated the instrumentalists and the costumes, most of the dances were unimpressive. The compulsory Falun Dafa propaganda spoiled the show. I have a bad feeling about who is profiting from the ticket sales.

A different side,
Feb 23, 2013
reviewer: from Minneapolis, Minnesota
This show was political. The dancers and dance was beautiful, clothes wonderful but the purpose was doubtful. Would not see it again and after some research will not suggest for others to see it.
