Good English narration, but seating crowded and show not particularly interesting either. Preferred "wax on, wax off".

At first I was not sure of the theatre show but my wife wanted to go so I decided to go ahead. Turned out to be amazing. The kids doing a summer sault on his head was unbelievable

This show is well worth the money. The athleticism is amazing. The ballet is beautiful. The narration is in English which made the show even more entertaining. The special effects were excellent. Would see it again. Like a Broadway show in NYC, this is a must see for learning about China.

This would either have been a hit or a miss but I think it was a big hit. It was a really interesting show and the performers are so talented. It is full on from the first moment til it ends and it is the perfect way of spending an evening in Beijing.

If you are expecting lots of Kung fu fighting you will be disappointed. This is a theatre performance that follows the journey of a young boy who becomes a Shaolin monk. It is well choreographed and there are some amazing feats performed during the show. The narration is in English. You are able to buy a DVD of the performance... More

This is seriously horrible. Like bad school play. Nothing to do with Chinese acrobatics nor martial arts. It was a waste of an evening.

This show was very well put up. Brilliantly and professionally staged with modern technology, it was interesting to watch & very entertainting. The Shaolin kungfu skills displayed were very real & amazing. I had always admired the skills of these Shaolin monks & seeing the real skills displayed throughout the show was an experience. The theatre is comfortable and clean,... More

Overly dramatized, gimmicky commercialized, plotless high school like skit which I am amazed that some people actually positively reviewed.
