The Beauty of Divine Beings Dancing

The global sensation Shen Yun is returning to Sydney for a strictly limited season this March. Tickets are now on sale for this all-new production.

Shen Yun Performing Arts is the world's premier classical Chinese dance and music company, established in New York in 2006.

The company proudly showcases a brilliant artistic revival and celebration of China's rich cultural heritage.

Through breathtaking classical Chinese dance, ethnic and folk dance, and story-based dance with orchestral accompaniment, Shen Yun's talented 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.

Let Shen Yun take you on a spectacular journey through ancient dynasties and heavenly realms. 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 tours to some 150 cities around the world each year. From Tokyo to Paris 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. It is an experience of a lifetime.

Performances will take place from 4 to 22 March at Capitol Theatre, 13 Campbell Street, Haymarket, Sydney, NSW 2000.

Tickets are now on sale through www.shenyun.com/sydney/capitol-theatre

Early bookings are advised.
