We were arriving in Beijing a day before our tour started so our OAT tour leader suggested that we might like to see this show. It was spectacular, staged beautifully. More dance, acrobatics and music than Kung Fu which was fine with us. We thought it was much better than the opera and acrobatic shows that were included as part... More

As a stand alone stage production it was very beautiful. As a Kung Fu show, not so much. There didn't seem to be much Kung Fu and what there was, was very simple. It's more of a drama production. Still beautful to see and if you have a night to kill, I would do this over the Peking Opera.

people have already expounded on the story that this show is telling and that is important to realize. this is not just out and out brazen martial are but the maturing of a child to a young man. there are plenty of characters and the movements range from fascinating to poetic. everyone loves the young kids that perform their flips...

Our tour guide in Beijing suggested we should go on a free night, we nipped along the road to a mini market for snacks and then settled down for the show. from start to finish the show was captivating, the acrobatics are breath taking. The commentary was in English so very easy to follow the story. My partner enjoyed it... More

The act has managed to package romance, action , drama and emotions into an hour. Its the story of a small monk's growth into an enlightened warrior. The act is complemented by excellent props and lighting. Exhilarating music and really vibrant actors which help to bring the story before our eyes. The narrative is in english which is a big...

Great Show and beautiful set. Though watching a 70 minutes act with a small baby was tiring but overall a unique show to experience. Very entertaining and refreshing. Photos and Videography is not permitted; but still many people do take pictures which i think is bad. Audience are allowed to take pictures with the actors after the show completes. It... More

If you really prefer live show, you will enjoy it, if not, you can buy CD of the performance. Actually, the Kung Fu team are trained and skilful in the performance. I think it worths to see once. I was in Beijing on Aug-Sep 2008.
