Please do not waste your time or money! This is propaganda done with bad taste! Good repeatable acrobatics , almost no dancing or musical value, used to deliver incredible stories of presumed faith healings and conversions! Excellent advertising and social media coverage, almost impossible to find a site where a bad review like this can be left. I bought the expensive tickets for myself and my friend. Ashamed of my choice since. Attended at Q&E in Vancouver, BC.

My opinion on Shen Yun? Total disaster! Why do you even call it Shen Yun (The beauty of divines dancing) while you should be calling it Arrhythmia of Lucifer. Somewhere along the show, there’s a soprano singing a Chinese song. I’d rather listening to the voice of a strangled cat in a graveyard than her singing. Oh good lawd! It also took me a while to figure out she was singing in Chinese. I had to see the caption to understand her singing and my native language is Chinese!! Should Shen Yun be a dance performance? Oh no. They employed a lot of computer graphic to achieve the effects. Many dance moves were unorganized and out of sync. Where’s the choreography? I couldn’t figure it out. Bam! It was clear to me it was the costumes that made up their deficiencies. Without those traditional Chinese costumes, the Shen Yun performers aren’t really good. Often enough the host and hostess were trying to crack a joke but where did they learn the jokes? From the Three Stooges? There’s no humorous ingredients at all. The best part of Shen Yun was the end of it when I could leave.

Spent $100 each on our tickets and resent spending the money cuz I'm a grad student on a budget. But was so disappointed over the mediocre quality of dance, we left at intermission for a beer and had a way better time. Should have stayed at home and watched "World of Dance" for free.

My husband bought 4 tickets as a Christmas gift for myself my mom and two sisters. I’m sorry to say we were not impressed with the dancing or singing. The costumes were very beautiful but the preform was lackluster. Most of the audience was not that impressed either vey few people clapped throughout the show. I would have been wonderful if it was a free school show. It was just ok.😐

I went to see a show supposedly about Traditional Music and Dancing and all we got was Religious Gospel and Communism. If thats is what I wanted I could have went to a Chinese Church. The last part of the show was pure religion. The only people who would truly like the show are Chinese dissidents who want to see the religious aspects against the communist party. So sad to be misled.

My wife and I love live shows, and she is an experienced a flamenco dancer, so she wanted to see this show. I bought tickets for her birthday at the Rosemont Theatre, we should have left during the intermission, but decided to torture ourselves until the end. When the narrators said “see you next year!”, we both said “nope”! My final mistake was telling her how much I spent on the tickets...
