The gong resounds, the curtain opens, and a heavenly scene is right before your eyes. Fairies emerge from a sea of billowing clouds. Mongolians ride on horseback across grasslands as vast as the sky. Classic stories of love and loss, of humor and heroic deeds, come to life. You will be amazed by how vibrant, exciting, and profound classical Chinese culture can be.
“An explosion of color and sound... Chinese culture in its fullest flower.”
A Divine Culture—Lost
Through breathtaking dance and music, Shen Yun’s artists tell of a time when divine beings walked upon the earth, leaving behind a culture that inspired generations. Ancient Chinese wisdom, infused with Buddhist and Taoist spirituality and values, gave birth to everything from medical innovations to opera, dance, architecture, and even martial arts. But after decades of communist rule, much of this divinely inspired culture has been destroyed or forgotten.
5,000 Years of Civilization Reborn
Shen Yun is a brilliant artistic revival and celebration of China’s rich cultural heritage.
Each performance consists of about 20 pieces, quickly moving from one legend, region, or dynasty to the next. Themes range from the delicate elegance of Tang court ladies to the battlefield heroics of valiant generals, from the timeless philosophical works of Lao-Tzu to spectacular scenes of magical realms. Some pieces also touch upon the topic of today’s China, shedding light on the oppression many experience for their spiritual beliefs, such as Falun Dafa. These tales of courage are often what audience members find the most touching and uplifting.
Shen Yun’s works convey the extraordinary depth and breadth of genuine Chinese culture, and bring the magnificence of five thousand years of civilization back to life on stage.
A Global Sensation
Shen Yun tours to some 150 cities around the world each year. From Tokyo to Paris, Sydney to New York, Shen Yun’s live performances garner thunderous applause and accolades from full houses everywhere.
Some audience members fly from other countries or drive hundreds of miles to see it. Others watch the same performance five or six times. Why? There are simply no words to describe it—you have to see it with your own eyes to find out.
Join us for the experience of a lifetime.
“Life affirming and life-changing… It’s an experience that will stay with you long after the final curtain.”
One Million Audience Members Each Season
Jsem naprosto okouzlena.

Opravdu mimořádný zážitek... něco úžasného.

Zážitek na celý život.
Důležité: Shen Yun nepochází z Číny
Shen Yun sídlí v New Yorku, ne v Číně, a koronavirus představení nijak neohrožuje. Všechna představení pokračují podle plánu. Brzy na shledanou! (Celá tisková zpráva)
The Merriam Theater opened on August 26, 1918 as the Sam S. Shubert Theater. In the early years, Gershwin musicals and Al Jolson reviews graced the stage. John Barrymore played Hamlet in the '20s and burlesque was featured in the '30s. Other performers included Helen Hayes, Katherine Hepburn, Sammy Davis, Jr., Angela Lansbury and Sir Lawrence Olivier. The theater was taken over in 1972 by the University of the Arts, and in 1991 was renamed and dedicated to John W. Merriam, a local entrepreneur, who was active on the Board of Directors for many years.
