Chinese Idiom—火眼金睛 (huǒ yǎn jīn jīng):可以辨別真假、善惡的眼睛。
Golden Eyes with Piercing Sight: Vision to separate truth from lies and good from evil.

Once long ago, there was a stone atop a mountain that had absorbed the essence of Heaven and Earth. From this stone was born the Monkey King. The Monkey King could speak at birth. He drank water from a spring when he was thirsty and ate fruit when he was hungry. Every day of his childhood, his spirit was happy and carefree.

One day, he noticed that some of his monkey friends were slowly getting old. Some became sick and died. The sadness he felt inspired him to seek the Dao to become an immortal to leave all earthly sufferings forever behind him.

The Monkey King cultivated diligently and eventually obtained the Dao, developing numerous supernormal abilities. One of these abilities was Golden Eyes with Piercing Sight. Using it he could distinguish monsters and demons from human beings with a single glance.

The Monkey King used his supernormal abilities to protect the Tang Monk on his journey to obtain the Buddhist scriptures from the West. Many magical stories related to this journey have been vividly presented on the Shen Yun stage. Watching the show, perhaps you too can also gain some the super-sight of the Monkey King. Such sight grants you the fortune to truly see all of the beautiful things of the world!

With Spring here and Summer right around the corner, most people are looking to escape the winter blues and head to their favorite vacation destinations. Well… maybe we can help with that!

A ticket to Shen Yun grants you access not just to the theater, but to another world. Our performance presents 5,000 years of Chinese history on stage through dynamic dance, classical music, and stunning visuals. Expanding on the stage experience is our animated backdrop, blending a 2D screen with 3D scenery, and immersing you in an experience of “Ds” beyond your imagination!

The integration of this digital backdrop with the performance is our unique feature. It eliminates the need for giant set pieces moving on and off stage. The transition from grasslands to villages, from Himalayan mountains to Imperial Courts, is seamless. So seamless, in fact, that some audience members feel almost like they’re really there. Maybe they once were?

To experience the trip of a lifetime, travel with Shen Yun. Limited time only! http://sypa.us/1KXAjJc

If variety is the spice of life, then Shen Yun is scorching on the Scoville scale for spiciness.

Broadway’s great. You can see herds of galloping wildebeest, visit the magical world of Oz, or hear the music of the night. Some shows can run for over 20 years. But sometimes you just want fresh and new.

Shen Yun is your solution. Besides presenting authentic Chinese culture, our show is new every year. 10 years, 10 different shows. This is something you won’t see in many productions. But you will see new stories and legends from the 5,000 years of Chinese history. Even if you’ve seen us once, there’s a million things we haven’t yet done.

So you’ve got your tickets! Now you’re thinking, “What should I wear?” Well, here’s your chance to come looking your best (it makes your experience that much more special). Pull out your evening wear - dresses, heels, suits, tuxedos (if you dare) - and come enjoy a lovely evening at the theater!

Once upon a time, long, long ago, there lived a monster that would come out on cold winter nights, terrorizing the world. Villagers spent sleepless nights with their doors sealed tight as they waited for the darkness to pass. One day, they discovered that the monster was afraid of fire and loud noises. Inspired by this, they lit up fireworks and firecrackers, driving the monster away. This day would become the most celebrated Chinese holiday—the Chinese New Year. Lighting fireworks and staying up until midnight, 守歲 (Shǒusuì), became a cherished custom passed down over generations.

Lunar New Year festivities run for 15 days, until the Lantern Festival. Many customs, such as warding off evil spirits and seeking blessings, have been passed down from ancient times. The holiday cuisine, including dumplings, sticky rice cakes, fish and rice balls is highly symbolic, conveying happiness, longevity, wealth, and reunions.

In 2017, we are celebrating the Year of the Rooster, an animal that is also considered a messenger of light in Chinese culture. The Chinese word 雞 (Jī) for rooster sounds similar to the word “auspicious” (吉), which is seen as a good omen.

We wish you a happy and auspicious 吉祥如意 (Jí xiáng rú yì) New Year! May the Year of the Rooster bring brightness to all corners of the world!

Every year, we receive many proclamations from various cities and officials, and this year they've been particularly gracious. In honor of our 10th anniversary, the California Legislature presented us with a resolution, which stated of Shen Yun:

“They share a vision and passion to revive the lost world of traditional Chinese culture and share these wonderful experiences with families and children throughout California.”

We’d like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all the wonderful people out there who are making all these inspiring resolutions happen. While the applause of our audiences will always be our greatest motivation, proclamations like these give us extra! Thanks again.

Less than a month into the tour, we've already held 79 shows in 20 cities. And this is just the beginning, the first part of our tour of North America!

In some cities the tickets were sold out, and in others new shows had to be added to meet the demand. There are very few tickets left in some cities, Tokyo being one example, several weeks before our scheduled performance.

So wherever you are, if you haven't gotten your tickets yet, don't dally! Don’t miss your chance to be part of this year's Shen Yun phenomenon.

Even though we’re excited to be on our biggest international tour yet, there’s still nothing more special than performing at home.

We're extra thrilled to have had to add a performance on Sunday ... just to meet demand!

Thank you so much, New York! We will see you tonight! http://sypa.us/2jbiNul

Swathed in white, a willow branch in one hand and a vase of pure water in the other, Bodhisattva Guan Yin is a deity of mercy and compassion, always willing to help those in need.

She’s one of the most popular divinities in Chinese culture. You might have seen her in a Shen Yun performance, as the goddess who helped the Monkey King in Journey to the West.

Her life is full of examples of how merciful she was, and the story of her origins is one of them. Born a princess, she sought to become a Buddhist nun and attain spiritual enlightenment. For this her father the king disowned her, and sent her into exile.

A few years later, the king became deathly ill. The only potion that could cure him required that someone offer his or her own arms and eyes as ingredients. But who would be willing to make such a sacrifice?

Yes, you guessed it. What happened next? To read the full story, click here: http://sypa.us/2iadiw1
