What a great show, we don't often go to shows like this and were very impressed, we were all glad we went. The show started on time and for about an hour we were well entertained. The theatre has clearly seen better days and could do with some refurbishment. My 10 year old daughter was reluctant to sit down as... More

It's only an hour long but it is stunning. Fantastic feats of balance staged in the theatrical presentation. £22 to get in but worth every Yuan! The theatre itself is very old and quaint. Be warned, though...it's popular and there are no photographs allowed.

I've paid a reasonable price for a very amazing show. Nobody shouldn't leave Beijing without seeing it! Actually I don't know how many other theaters offer similar shows in the Big City, but this was so entertaining that, for almost one hour, one can actually forget about every problem, every issue and everybody else in the world.

This was recommended to us as much better than TianDi theater which we have been to several times in the past, although not recently. We were disappointed at the quality of many of the acts, the lack of professionalism on the part of the producer (many skips in the musical track during the performances, lack of transitions in the music...

Young Chinese acrobats with amazing strength and skills! Seamless transitions between acts, but music a little choppy between transitions. Balancing acts on high stack of chairs, graceful women with umbrella tricks, partner stunts, balancing on bicycles, and motorcycles in a cage. Even a clown between acts. Theater is easy to reach by subway. The 1 hour show passes quickly!

We attended this show and ERA in Shanghai - between the two, the one in Shanghai was significantly better, both performance wise and theater wise. If you don t have the chance to see ERA, then this is absolutely a must while in China. Their acrobatic skills are beyond this world. Plus, the good price for a ticket is worth... More

If you enjoy acrobatics you must see this show. I paid 120 RMB for VIP tickets (a friend booked them on-line from some English language website). You will see things that you have never seen before and trust me after that, no show will impress you anymore!

Nice show in Beijing to enjoy after a 1/2 day of sightseeing or as an alternative way to take in "authentic" Chinese culture. Lots of beautiful costumes and stunning displays of strength, flexibility, and dexterity. Like most other Chinese acrobat shows you'll see all over the world, but this one is in China so I think that makes it a... More

Avoiding tourist traps is easy in Beijing because the vast majority of the city’s points of interests are centuries old, though that doesn’t stop the ambush of hawkers of postcards, hand-crafted cloisonné wares and questionable jade at strategic entrances. Still, some cheesy entertainment can be a lot of fun. Take in an exciting and colorful Chinese acrobatics show in Chaoyang... More

We attended the acrobatics show at the end of one of our Beijing tour days as it was included in our package. We initially didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised on how much we really did enjoy it. Some of their balancing acts were amazing and the motorcycles in the steel caged sphere was simply wild. We were happy... More
