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.

Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

One of the most popular Latino comedians of all time, Lopez is an author, sitcom star, Grammy nominated and undeniably hilarious. He's uncompromisingly edgy despite his massive success, and draws on his life as a Mexican-American man and his difficult early childhood experiences growing up with his grandparents. Now with a certain President in the White House, prepare for some explosive verbal fireworks when he tackles politics and racism in the undeniably fiery Lopez style.
