An exquisite display of traditional Chinese culture will soon arrive in Taiwan that currently can’t be seen on the mainland.
This majestic spectacle was booked out last year, and people have been buying tickets months ahead.
New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts fascinates audiences around the world, and this year’s tour is no exception, with its unique fusion of Western and Chinese instruments, high-tech animated backdrops, handmade costumes, heartwarming stories, and world-class classical Chinese dance.
Shen Yun will make its 9th tour in Taiwan from March 4 to April 12. According to the organizers, people started booking 2015 tickets half a year ago to make sure they didn’t miss it, with over a quarter of this year’s tickets already sold in the southern city of Kaohsiung six months before the show for example.
Last year, the Shen Yun International Company presented 37 performances to a full house in seven major Taiwanese cities from Feb. 21 to March 24, leaving the island’s literary and artistic circles in awe.
Audience members, particularly fans from mainland China, were desperate for tickets.
Huang Shih-cheng, former Taiwanese National Policy Advisor, and president of Timing Pharmaceutical Group Co. Ltd., told Epoch Times: “Each program is very creative, with costumes, backdrop scenes, and the orchestra at the highest level.”
He added: “This group really can completely represent Chinese people, displaying features of Chinese and each historical dynasty, making a name for itself worldwide.”
Also deeply touched by the show was Robin Hsu, president of outdoor equipment company Jack Wolfskin, who was inspired to write this poem:
Shen Yun leaves the world in awe.
Divine dances glorify Chinese culture.
Genuine and excellent abilities
Earn praise worldwide.
