Shen Yun Performing Arts

Dec. 26 Shen Yun Performing Arts Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St. 7 p.m., $60-$150, 345.0606, ticketomaha.com In the more than 5,000 years Chinese culture has been in existence, it’s spawned some incredible art, music, legends, spirituality, philosophy and dance. The place to see all of those things in one breathtaking presentation is a Shen Yun performance. Dance is an obvious component, but those dances portray everything from mythical battles to the daily struggles of life under the rule of Mao Tse Tung. High-tech backgrounds travel everywhere from the misty mountaintops of the Himalayas to tropical lakes in the south. Traditional Chinese instruments such as the pipa and erhu provide music for world-class singers. The program doesn’t go stale, though. Shen Yun changes the performance each year, and this show at the Orpheum is all-new.
