Shen Yun CL Recommends

When: Sat., Dec. 30, 2 & 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 31, 1 p.m. 2017
Price: $80 and up.

Nothing exceeds like excess, and that’s what Shen Yun delivers — a lavish spectacle boasting a full orchestra, battalions of dancers and bedazzling costumes. It’s a nostalgic recreation of classical Chinese dance, music and stagecraft – ancient art forms almost wiped out in Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution. Sure this is cultural tourism, but it’s kind of like seeing the Lincoln memorial. What seems hokey at first turns out to be pretty damn cool.
