Shen Yun returns to Sydney Lyric from 7-11 February with ALL-new program on its global tour.

The New York–based Shen Yun has unique artistic vision that expands theatrical experience into a multi-dimensional, inspiring journey through the five millennia of traditional Chinese culture. Featuring classical Chinese dance—along with patented scenographical effects and all-original orchestral works, Shen Yun opens a portal to a civilization of enchanting beauty and enlightening wisdom. Each performance is at once exciting, moving, and inspiring like nothing you’ve ever seen. Traditional Chinese culture with its deep spiritual roots was displaced by communism in China.

Shen Yun is keeping this precious heritage alive on stage. And it’s an experience that will take your breath away. Discover why Shen Yun is inspiring people everywhere, from leading fashion designers and Hollywood producers to musicians and CEOs. This season it’s your turn to be inspired!

Experience the extraordinary. Experience Shen Yun.
