For new year I paid over 700 dollars to watch shen yun for my family. We fell asleep a couple of times. So boring and their dance level was so disappointing and almost anyone could do it with a couple of months practice. It is simply a scam. Save your money and time!

1.0 star rating Artin from Los Angeles, CA


Shen Yun spends millions of dollars advertising their show in order to sell tickets. It was one of the worst and most painful shows to watch, alot of religious messages, weird singing, and the same concept of dancing over and over again. Really do not recommend

1.0 star rating Elizabeth Sosa from El Paso, TX


This is a review of the Shen Yun 2022 performance. Although there were a few understudies on stage, the level of talent was incredible. Why the 1 star? This show had a very heavy religious zealot and anti-communism message that made it very difficult to just sit back and enjoy the show. It is very difficult to enjoy a song sung by a world famous tenor when he is singing about atheists and evolutionists being layered with evil.It had a cult-like feeling, as if you were attending mass in a mega church. 15%-20% of the audience left around intermission. It was an uncomfortable show to watch, which is a shame because the performers were so talented.

1.0 star rating Jim Hopkins from Waterloo, Illnois


Very disappointing show for the cost of the tickets. Very repetitive, boring, looked like a high school flag show. Most people at the show left at intermission. Absolutely no response from ticket office when contacted for any amount of refund.

1.0 star rating Andy from Boston, Massachusetts


If you're into anti-china propaganda, just donate yorr money and don't bother wasting time on a high-school level "performance".

1.0 star rating Peter from Ottawa, Ontario


A primitive, ideology-driven spectacle.

1.0 star rating A. Brown from Toronto, Ontario


Barely has anything to do with performing arts... A political proclamation at the expense of the paying audience.
