The show was not like one piece that you watch from the beginning to the end on one breath (like for example cirque du soleil "O"). Two hosts after each dance number were so boring bringing all dynamics of this concert so down. The technical part of the show was also poor and outdated, may be 10 years ago this video projection of poor quality was great. The orchestra sound must be better - this is 2018 and they should use microphones to make a perfect sound to connect to the "show". There are some ridiculous dance numbers with cell phones and all these communist anti-propaganda. There is no leitmotif and logically developed direction - just chaos. And stage also looked poor because there were no decorations and they relied on this poor projection on a screen. Bottom line - we are very disappointed. Lost money and time. If you think that we are the only people who complain on this show, type in google " south san francisco shen yun review on yelp". Not recommend this at all.

Oh my... where to start... This show is definitely overpriced for what it really is... Costumes are colorful, and the dancers are good (not that impressive), but there is so MUCH political and religious propaganda, that's is both, unethical and outrageous. Went to see this show in Vancouver, March 24 2018 and I was shocked of how much propaganda content there was. Also, we found the flying spirits, angels and demons in and out of the huge video screen were super tacky and kind of ridiculous. The banner they showed despicting "Falong Dafa is good", and the communist bad guys beating good samaritans were like the (rotten) cherry on the top of the cake... If I would have known about this , I would have never paid $119 each ticket. Felt like we contributed for their political and religious campaign... We just want to let people know so they can take a better informed decision than we did!. If the propaganda doesn't bother you, and you're willing to spend $120 or more each ticket, go for it

The costumes were beautiful, but for the $100.00 per ticket it wasn't worth the money. The dances were the same over and over again. In between each set a lady came out speaking Chinese. why? This is the USA. The show advertisement is better than the show. I would not recommend it. We were a group of four and no one liked the show. The theater was ok, but there was a lot of people that kept talking during the show. The advertisement make the show appear better than it is. The reviews they show, are individuals who were paid to give a great review.

I was waiting with impatience for the concert after watching some interviews on Internet. The concert turned to be a boring and primitive level of performance. Some dancers are skilled, but the rest are very entry level dancers. Very sad, that all these fake interviews are made with the help of really professional people in the USA. Some have tears rolling on their cheeks. FAKE TEARS! It is a shame to display Shen Yun as a masterpiece of a Chinese dance. I know what Chinese dancers can do, but I didn't see a real dance in this concert. Huge money and very bad dance.

Hadn’t read reviews hefore I saw this show and 20 minutes unto it..I was already looking at my watch. The dances changed little ..just the costumes. The backscreen was the only set decoration and I tired of the dancers jumping to be hidden from vire so their digital images were projected on Backscreen. I pretty much agree with the negative reviews and will spend my next $180 ticket price on a show in New York.

My uncle got tickets for us to see this show. With all the advertising and propaganda I heard about this show, I was expecting something truly incredible. I've seen many shows, musicals, performances, cirque de solei's so my expections were really high. Reviews said its the "greatest show on earth"... Really?? Quite frankly it was so bland, even bordering on boring. Yes, lovely costumes and synchronized dancing, but very repetitive, simple and boring. Most of the people we spoke to around us felt the same way. You almost feel like you were fooled and ripped off. Save your time and especially money. It is not a cheap venue, but wow... whoever is doing the advertising for this show are certainly brilliant... or really pushing the truth...

2.0 star rating Gracie from Detroit, Michigan


Was really looking forward to a great show and left feeling very disappointed. Paid alot of money for our box seats at The Detroit Opera March 2019, should have bought tickets to something else. There were a few good numbers but the rest seemed copies of the one before. Also the baritone singer was really a waste of time. Such a disappointment.
