BORING

Melodramatic, overpriced but above all boring. For what we paid I was expecting Cirque du Soleil but didn't even get Disney on Ice. Were I alone I would have walked out after the first number. It turned out that the rest of the family couldn't wait for it to end either. If you do go don't give them your phone # as you will be hit with Chinese robo calls every time they're about to roll into town.

SHEN YUN: GREAT THEATER RETURNS!

Shen Yun is a magical experience of performing arts. It is both delightfully entertaining and inspiringly beautiful. I wish I could see it more often! If you have not seen a ballet, opera, symphony concert, or Shakespeare before or very recently then you might need to change your mindset. This is truly fine art, and just like with those art forms you have to appreciate the incredible discipline and the supreme attention given to depicting pure beauty. Further, some of the pieces heroically expose the human rights atrocities that the people of Hong Kong and the 1.4 billion people in China, and really the whole world (under China's influence), are facing. These performers should be given the Nobel Peace Prize. It is good for families and in fact I bring my whole family every year. It is highly recommended. You can't get any better than this.

STUNNING

tunning dancing and live orchestra, as well as singing. Beliefs are portrayed in some scenes -- but if this were a Greek Orthodox Christian show (which I am and which we have) then that would have been the subject matter.  Go in understanding they're also presenting their beliefs -- and enjoy the show watching a culture's ways. Moving -- mind blowing timing, lovely orchestration, and sheer love in what the dancers do.  Not only are the dancers near perfect, not only do they push the boundaries, they glow from within in their craft.  They obviously love what they do. We went twice in one week. Two different family members separately gave me tickets .. I didn't think it was possible to like a show so much a second time days later, though I wanted to see it again.  And then we were floored at how excellent it was, how stunning, still even 2 days later.  So I had to write this.

SHEN YUN?

An extremely expensive but mercifully short show by a ballet group that bills itself as "the world's premier classical Chinese dance and music company." Deceptively these aren't members of Falun Gong but instead recycled, cell phoned, footloose members of the "out of work" dancers guild of the Juilliard school in New York City. They were nicely costumed, accompanied by an "Eastern Pop" Symphony Orchestra, backed by "out of date" stage props complete with dry ice and further backed by a seemingly bottomless publicity budget. About the most exciting thing was the silver-haired bat (native to eastern Ontario) that was flying around Southam Hall during the first half of the show. The unfortunate rodent was later driven out of the premises by the shrill, Dolly Parton on Helium musings of a wobbly soprano dutifully forcing out a 50 word religious song. In a 2012 statement, the Chinese embassy in Washington issued a warning to Americans who might have been swayed by all the Shen Yun posters that appear annually in almost every conceivable urban location in our major cities. Well, if the all powerful, organ harvesting, 5G network meddling Chinese government is so affected by this show I think perhaps we should heed their ominous warning before we fork out the $160CDN per ticket .

SHEN YUN

Good advertising, but very boring performance. Some dances are good, but overall the performance is not impressive. We work very hard do not get to sleep. It is not worth it. We are not going to come back for another performance.

INSPIRING

Inspiring, educational, uplifting. Shen Yun promotes good traditional values. I took my child to see the performance multiple times over the years. He enjoyed it.
