SHEN YUN PERFORMING ARTS

If Eccles Theater continues to offer Shen Yun to Utah audiences, the performance should be marketed for what it is--a political performance by a disenfranchised ex-pat political group.

I WOULD GIVE IT ZERO STARS IF I COULD

This is nothing more than a propaganda performance by Falun Gong. I was deeply disappointed that the Ordway allowed such false advertising. Multiple people walked out and in the end our family felt robbed of $700. Do NOT waste your time or money on this performance.

ENTERTAINING, BUT BE READY FOR CULT PROPAGANDA

The show was a beautiful display of color, dance and music. The music was played well but was as repetitive as the dance. It was billed as traditional Chinese art but I felt it fell far short of conveying anything traditional, other than a few musical instruments and some folkloric stories. But what disappointed me the most was the political / religious overtones that just got more heavy handed as the show progressed. Not to give anything away but, the final few acts were nothing but propaganda from the members of the Falun Gong "religion". This was started in 1992 in Southern China, quickly spread and the members have been persecuted by the Chinese government off and on ever since.

MISLEADING PROMOTION - SAVE YOUR MONEY

Like some other reviewers - I am posting because it is only fair to present the facts - then you make the decision. We did not read any reviews in advance or would not have wasted our time. Beyond the overt propaganda that is not advertised in advance - the performances were colorful, sometimes artistic, but uninspiring and boringly repetitive. The on-screen animations were primitive to say the least. After 10 minutes you have seen it all. And then there is the Falun Gong propaganda - this is a pseudo-artistic front for political fundraising

OVERPRICED REPETITVE CHOREOGRAPHY...SLOW MOVING

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.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

I would not recommend this show. It is way overpriced. The tickets should be around $30 or $20. The show is not historical but political. You feel like you have been ripped off after that show. Perfect example of how a good marketing can sell anything. I deeply regret getting tickets for it because they were so expensive.
