“A wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Really enjoyed the evening. A professional show that truly demonstrates the acrobatic skills. Focused on the true skill of the artists .. Well worth the evening. THIS IS NOT Cirque de Soleil! where a greater focus may be on the illusion.

“Why number 5 on the To Do list?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I don't know...

It was a good show, don't get me wrong. But it was short, and much of it I had seen before in various circuses. Certainly a fun thing to do at night in Beijing, but I am not understanding why this is listed as the # 5 thing to do , or even in the top 25...

YMMV.

“Fun little show, but theatre is not up to par”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had an OK time visiting the Chaoyang Theatre Acrobatics show. We purchased tickets for 280cny from our hotel concierge and took a taxi to the theatre. Inside, there are no assigned seats, just find an usher and show him your ticket, and they will seat you. The seats are comfortable, but the theatre itself is dingy and old. The bathrooms are HORRID and look like they have not been cleaned in years! The show itself was OK, the motorcyclists are by far the highlight, but there are also jugglers and acrobats. If you have ever seen a Cirque du Soleil, do not expect that level of quality here. The plate jugglers had plates attached to their sticks! Some performers were talented but overall it was very amateur. It was enjoyable and a bit of comic relief, but probably not worth the money.

Oh, images are allowed with no flash, so bring your camera!
