Shen Yun in San Diego was terrible indeed. It really bothers me that it is run by a political organization yet packaged as an art group. In fact the whole show is about marketing a cult-like "religion" (Falun Gong), which was banned in China. I personally have no issue with this "religion", but the show does not market itself honestly as so. In fact it sickens me that we had pay very high prices to indirectly support their cause without being informed in advance. This to me is dishonest and I do not appreciate this forced contribution. The songs (opera singers sing Chinese songs about waking up to Gods's calling....etc) you hear are about worshiping of their "religious beliefs", and the dances are repetitive in motion and choreography, with the exception of different color outfits. The dancers are talented but the show was done very poorly, in bad taste. I am very disappointed and feel cheated.

Just saw the Shen Yun show in NYC.
It is blatant and clumsy propaganda, and is dishonestly marketed as 'traditional Chinese dance'. Then a bad soloist comes out and sings 'evolution is evil'!!! The audience snickered uncomfortably, and many left at intermission.
The religion has been mercilessly persecuted by the CCP. But they are blatantly dishonest in their marketing here.
You will be massively overpaying for a few dances and a cult-like religious indoctrination session.
Avoid, avoid, avoid this deceptive waste of money at all costs. You have been warned!!
