5,000 Years of Civilization Reborn

New York-based Shen Yun returns to Sydney Lyric from 6-17 April as part of its global tour. 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.

Shen Yun makes this possible by pushing the boundaries of the performing arts, with a unique blend of stunning costuming, high-tech backdrops, and a live orchestra like no other. 

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. Shen Yun tours to some 150 cities around the world each year.
