Travelling the globe was on your list of New Year’s resolutions, but the budget is a little tight after all of that holiday spending, no? It’s OK — you can easily be transported to the Far East as Shen Yun brings its newest interpretation of 5,000 years of Chinese culture to the stage at the Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. The epic blend of Chinese-inspired music and dance marries colorful visuals with an undercurrent of political subtext. Controversial spiritual group Falun Gong is behind the Shen Yung franchise. As such, you’ll pick up on some not-so-subtle digs at the Chinese government woven into the theatrics — but the spectacle of the show isn’t upstaged by its undertones. International affairs enthusiasts may have a bone to pick with some of the cultural appropriation and messaging, but the aesthetics are more than enough to keep everyone from wide-eyed kids to wannabe globetrotters engaged. The show opens at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28 and continues through Sunday, Feb. 5. Tickets are $66 to $165 at shenyunperformingarts.org/dallas.
