ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.—Shen Yun is an international phenomenon that showcases 5 millennia of traditional Chinese culture through music, dance and performance. The show is coming to Mahaffey Theater in St. Pete February 14-20.

Shen Yun creates an entirely new production every year. Enjoy story-based dancing by classically trained performers, unique live orchestra blending Eastern and Western instruments, resounding voices from solo vocalists, stunning costuming and dazzling animated backdrops. The show brings to light a lost culture that can't be shown in China due to its current political climate.

Tickets start at $80 and can be purchased online.
