​Shen Yun

FRIDAY, JANUARY 6 - SUNDAY, JANUARY 8, FRIDAY: 7:30 PM; SATURDAY: 2 PM & 7:30 PM; SUNDAY: 2 PM
LOCATION: TPAC - TENNESSEE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER $70 - $150

There was a time when the world was full of magic and splendor, as if all on earth existed in harmony with heaven. You could see it in the arts, feel it in the air and hear it in the beat of a drum. This was a land of heroes and sages, dragons and phoenixes, emperors and immortals. Known today as China, this place was once called "the Middle Kingdom" and "the Land of the Divine." What if you could journey back and visit this lost world? Now you can. Shen Yun brings the profound spirit of this lost civilization to life on stage with unrivaled artistic mastery. Every dance movement, every musical note makes this a stunning visual and emotional experience you won’t find anywhere else. See for yourself why this performance is leaving millions around the world in awe.
