The talent on display was amazing and each act had something special and unique to show. This was a show without frills but the acts carried the audience along with their daring and dexterity. Do not miss this show.

ERA Intersection of Time was a great show despite there been lots of empty seats. There was a good atmosphere. Some of the acts were comparable to Cirque du Soleil although it's not on the same scale; the costuming and stage set are no where near as themed. It was relatively cheaply priced too, for what you saw. A good... More

You must see this, its worth taking time out. The acrobats are very good particularly the swan dance and the motorbike show. It's in the shanghai circus building next to the shanghai circus station. The show starts at 7:00 and I would suggest reaching there an hour early and buy tickets from the counter before it gets crowded. There is... More

The show is amazing, It is 90 minutes long with a 10 minute break in between. Very well choreographed and each of the acts keep you glued down to the seat. Not a single dull moment throughout the show. Entertainment for kids and adults. However I was told that they have not changed the acts for some years now, so... More

Pretty girls flying high in the air, jumping loops, shooting fires, all the elements in a traditional acrobatic show can be seen here but with more to add! A must-do for families with kids.

The show was great. Not a glitch and some stunts were breathtaking. Music is loud . Performers are true professionals who seem to enjoy putting on the show. Huge crowds but all seats seemed good in the way the theater was structured. We highly recommend this show for all ages.

Went here on the last night of our 3 day visit to Shanghai. Never seen anything like it. It just got better and better. I won't spoil it but you won't believe the end of the show and what they can do with motorbikes! BRILL!!

I heard a lot about this show, since I have arrived in Shanghai 2 years ago, and finally I made it to go and check it out. I bought the tickets on their web site and I went on a Tuesday night with my girlfriend. We were simply impressed and we love the whole performance. Great !!!

The show is very average; don't expect to see the famous Chinese acrobatics - this is not it. We've been disappointed.

We had looked forward to Chinese Acrobats on our visit to Shanghai, remembering an amazing show in Beijing 20 years ago. ERA was sort of a poor man's Cirque du Soleil style presentation. The acrobats were okay, but not remarkable, and everything was muddled by the Cirque theatricality and drama. If you want Chinese music and costumes, contortions, plates, chairs... More
