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

The acts were amazing. My favorite was the bicycle act where twelve girls climb on each other. Watching a Chinese acrobatics show is one thing but watching it in Beijing itself is a completely different experience.

If it was free it would be amusing but that you paid for such badly directed run of the mill circus is a bummer. I had a bit of child labor concerns honestly. All that said the actual talent was pretty good. Bicycle and contortions were impressive. Hand balancing good too

I'm not a big fan of this kind of shows but this one really surprised me. They are all very competent artists and they all put a lot of effort to make a great show. Highly recommended!

Honestly, really didn't want to go. I was tired and hungry and had no interest. But my daughter insisted (we do anything for daughters right?) Well the show was only about an hour with non-stop action. Very professional, exciting and even funny. Very happy I was "forced" to go and would be happy to recommend it.
