New York-based Shen Yun returns to the Capitol Theatre 8-17 March 2024 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.

The traditional Chinese culture Shen Yun presents cannot be seen anywhere else in the world—not even in China.  Experience a lost culture through the incredible art of classical Chinese dance, and see legends come to life. Shen Yun tours to over 150 cities around the world each year. Some people fly from other countries or drive hundreds of miles to see it. Others see the same performance five or six times. Why? Many say there are no words to describe it—you have to see it with your own eyes to find out. Join us for the experience of a lifetime. Be prepared for a theatrical experience that will take your breath away!
