We would not normally choose to go to an acrobatic show, but this was offered as part of our Tour and are we glad we went. The show is a series of different performers with different skills, ranging from a troupe of unicyclig acrobats starting the show, through a girl spinning a single large hoop, to a large "traditional circus"...

There are many acrobat shows in Shanghai and you should visit one during your stay. We went to the one at the Shanghai Centre Theatre. A fabulous 90 minute non stop show with approximately 12 acts, ranging from funny, to visually appealing to simply amazing. One act was better than the next. You will have a wonderful time.

To be honest I found this show to be just average. It wasn't really a show as much, it was made up of about 10 different acts and then a small break between each one to reset the stage. The acrobats made a lot of errors on the night from dropping things to knocking over the hoops etc that it... More

Great acrobatic performances. It was not a cirque du soleil like show, which allowed us to enjoy the acrobatics much better.

The show was incredible! The stunts were amazing. Like the other TA reviewers said below, I'm shocked there aren't more reviews on this show! While it doesn't have the same production level as a show like cirque, it was still incredibly entertaining and very enjoyable. My husband and I both left with our jaws dropped!

The show is a must do. The acrobats range from young to old with varying degrees of talent. There are amazing stunts and comic relief. The variety of performances keeps the audience engaged. It is not cirque de soleil. It is a local company entertaining audiences in their city. Everyone in our group enjoyed the performance. Bong, bong!

The show is 1.5hr and is no Cirque du Soleil but its fun and entertaining. Worth a trip to the Jing An area. The theatre sits inside the Shanghai Centre were the Ritz Carlton hotel is located. Din Tai Fung is in the Centre which we had dinner there before the show. We made a day out of our trip... More

I have never been a fan of Acrobatic shows, although I have only watched them on television, but seeing this show live on stage has really changed my mind. The show was so entertaining, the physical ability of these performers and the precision was truly unbelievable . Most of the performers were young, but a few of the older ones... More

I am actually surprised by the few reviews this acrobatics show has on TA. Just west of the posh main shopping section of Nanjing West road, in the same complex as the Carlton Hotel. The ticket office is on street level and the theatre inside, on the 4th floor. The show consists of about nine 10-minute performances, ranging from very... More

I went in this theatre which was closed to my hotel, but easily reachable by anyone with the underground. The show, as read in my guide, are almost every evening at 19:30 and the ticket can be bought directly at the box at the entrance of the theatre, you will find them on the street. The price is good, less... More
