Shen Yun comes back to the American Bank Center April 17-18, 2017
Performing arts show returns with an entirely new production
(September 2- Corpus Christi, TX ) Shen Yun Performing Arts returns to Corpus Christi with an entirely new production at the American bank Center Selena Auditorium, April 17-18, 2017. Tickets go on sale today through www.TicketMaster.com and www.ShenYun.com/Corpus-Christi
The gong strikes and a journey across five millennia begins. From the mist, 50 dancers clad in traditional costumes emerge in front of a 30-foot tall video backdrop that morphs from the mountains of Tibet to the sprawling plains of Mongolia and points in between. A 40-piece orchestra rises with the sounds of western and ancient eastern instruments. The all-new spectacular Shen Yun 2017 tells the stories of when heroes split mountains and swam with dragons, when divine beings walked the earth and when dynasties ruled supreme.
Cherished stories from China’s 5,000-year history like the tales of the heroine Mulan and General Yue Fei are told through large scale dance numbers featuring authentically detailed period costumes. The vibrant video backdrop transports audiences through time to ancient dynasties such as the Tang and the Qin, to the mountains of Tibet, the shores of a Dai village and the sprawling plains of Mongolia. The interactive video allows dancers to jump in and out of the screen delighting the audience.
Tickets are $80 - $120 and are available by calling 800-974-3698. More information is available at www.shenyun.com.
ABOUT THE PERFORMING ARTS GROUP
Here are excerpts from ShenYun.com: “In 2006, a group of leading classical Chinese artists came together in New York with one wish: to revive the true, divinely inspired culture of China and share it with the world.”…”Entirely nonprofit and independent of the Chinese regime, Shen Yun Performing Arts enjoys the artistic freedom of New York, enabling it to now bring these ancient traditions to the stage. Shen Yun and its mission have drawn top talent from around the world; many artists are winners of international competitions in dance, choreography, and music.”
The five companies travel six months of the year, performing in more than 30 countries on four continents. To date, millions have seen Shen Yun show. For more information on Shen Yun Performing Arts, visitwww.shenyun.com or the company’s YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/user/ShenYunTV.
