Shen Yun Vocal Technique
Ancient Chinese theater and early European opera shared the same singing technique, believed to produce the most beautiful and pure tone of voice.
Today, however, the true bel canto technique for singing in the upper register has been lost in Europe. In China as well, it is now impossible to find a singer who has truly mastered this ancient method.
Only Shen Yun’s singers are now again using this traditional and ancient technique on the modern stage. Their ability to perform bel canto while retaining perfect Chinese diction is likewise unparalleled.
All their song texts were specially written for Shen Yun performances. Brimming with deep reflection about life, these songs transcend the boundaries of nation, race, and culture, resonating with audiences the world over and inspiring hope in people’s hearts.
