Lots of places nearby Segerstrom Center to eat, from pricey to moderate.

Pretty good food, and can leave your car there to save $10 parking fee. Also Japanese, Indian, Cuban or specialty Hamburger restaurants in the same center.

Political pamphlet, cute, though. Religiously inclined. For Chinese population, or those studying Chinese. Very colorful, so children enjoy that too, but too long for kids to handle.

Description

Shen Yun Performing Arts from New York presents classical Chinese dance and music in gloriously colorful and exhilarating shows. You’ll see hundreds of the world’s best dancers, a live orchestra with Eastern and Western musical instruments, gorgeous costumes, and breathtaking backdrops… Experience heaven with a selection of the best performances from Shen Yun’s 2007 to 2009 seasons.

China was once known as “Shen Zhou” or “Land of the Divine,” as people once believed Chinese culture to be a gift from the heavens. Virtue and piety were emphasized in daily life. Sadly, though, over time much of this great culture has been lost.

Until now…

Based in New York , Shen Yun Performing Arts is reviving the long-lost treasures of China by presenting a series of original performances across the globe. Its shows transport audiences to a land of beauty and enchantment, leaving them uplifted and inspired.

The performances combine ancient technique with modern technology. Involving hundreds of talented dancers and musicians, original scores, live orchestra, and custom-designed digital backdrops, these pieces of artistry delight the senses, touch the heart, and move the soul.
