Around 26pounds per ticket but definitely worth it. It was not what we initially expected but still enjoyed it. Its a story of a young boy who learns the art of Kung Fu. The performers were amazing and so talented. A must see! You don't really need to book in advance as our guide just bought the tickets for us... More

It was enjoyable but not thrilling. I actually liked the drumming at the start the best. The sound and lights were to good effect.

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.

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
