Sacramento Community Theater Presents Shen Yun

Disclaimer: While this production looks astounding, I would encourage you to discuss the religious heritage represented. Some of the performances are retelling legendary stories of military heroes, historical and religious figures, and some of the music may be religious in nature.

From the website:
Classical Chinese dance has a history of thousands of years, sharing a common ancestry with martial arts. Its dramatic jumping, spinning, and flipping techniques are just part of the vast repertoire of movements that make classical Chinese dance—one of the most demanding and expressive art forms in the world. 
From the moment the gong is struck, you know you are in for something memorable. The Shen Yun Orchestra masterfully blends ancient Chinese instruments, like the emotive erhu and delicate pipa, with a full Western orchestra, creating an exhilarating new sound.
