The Higher
Origins of
Traditional
Beauty

C

HINA WAS ONCE known as the
Land of the Divine. Legend has
it that each dynasty came from a
unique heavenly paradise. Over the
course of five millennia, deities descended
to Earth and took on human form—playing
roles from emperors to heroes and from
sages to generals. Their wisdom and virtue

laid the groundwork for China’s rich culture.
It is even said that classical Chinese dance
and attire mirror those in the heavens.
China’s dynasties have come and gone,
and much of this heritage has been lost. Shen
Yun strives to bring this ancient and mythical
culture to life on stage, reviving five thousand
years of profound wisdom and divine beauty.

Music that Runs
Millennia Deep
Music is such a big part of every Shen Yun
performance—from the live orchestra that
accompanies each dance to the vocal and
instrumental solos on stage. Shen Yun’s
orchestra is one of a kind, harmoniously
blending the distinct beauty of ancient
Chinese instruments with the grandeur of
a Western orchestra. The result is a vivid
sound with great emotional range—perfect
for bringing to life the soul of an ancient
civilization.

“I was overwhelmed.
My entire body was trembling—but in
a very loving way. I felt very joyful.
It was beautiful, it was healing.”
—Elisa Brown, renowned soprano

“Her voice was so ethereal...
Powerful, marvelous soprano.”
—Lee Meriwether & Marshall Borden

Vibrant Ethnic
and Folk Traditions
Let Shen Yun whisk you away to the top of the
Himalayas for a sacred celebration or to the
vast grasslands to join Mongolian horsemen.
You will discover how diverse Chinese culture
actually is, with dozens of different ethnic
groups and regional folk traditions, each with
its own distinct costume and dance styles. You
will be amazed by how these dances fill the
stage with color and energy.

Legends. Mischief.
And Miracles.
Everyone loves a great story, and Chinese
culture has 5,000 years full of them. Historic
epics, timeless literary classics, and mystical
folklore make up this world of deities and
magic. Each Shen Yun performance includes
short dance stories of heroes who battle evil,
fly up to the heavens, or even visit deep-sea
palaces. Packed with action, courage, and
humor, these tales embody the wisdom and
virtues of ancient China.

ERHU
The erhu has a history of over
4,000 years. Although it has
only two strings, it can in the
hands of a virtuoso fill the
air with tenderness, sorrow,
or joy—holding the
audience spellbound.
