Chinese Culture, Cult and Communism – Shen Yun – A Review

What a night it promised to be….Chinese dancing, music and storytelling, from the largest and most successful theatre/dance group in the world.  Our wonderful children had bought us tickets for the Shen Yun performance in the Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh (it was very generous of them as even the cheap tickets were expensive- although that did not stop the large theatre being packed).
