Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic musical is based on Gaston Leroux's gothic novel of life beneath the stage. A secretive opera composer stalks the halls of the Paris Opera House and becomes obsessed with young ingenue Christine, and will stop at nothing to have her. This longstanding Eighties rock opera has received a full-scale update for new audiences without compromising on the glory of the original production.

A glorious celebration of five thousand years of Chinese culture, Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music, integrating technique and influence from both East and West. A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from an ancient feudal period of time.
