First of all, let me say, I admit all the effort the acrobats put into the training. It is clear they try their best and are very talented. The performance is mostly impressive. The overall show itself is a bit uneven, some parts are very entertaining (the motorcycles, and a few others), some segments are not so interesting or ever... More

It was arranged through our hotel. We did not have expensive seats and they were satisfactory, 3 rows from the front. The level of showmanship and artistry was superb a combination of gymnastics and mosern dance and fun. Don't miss it.

We booked an early show (5:30) on our arrival day to Beijing. Tickets were 280 yuan for fourth row center sets. I really think center seats in any row would be fine as the theater is not very large. The performance was great fun. As with other posts, I agree the acts are not all perfectly precise, but the net... More

Went there after some friends recommended it and never regretted it. The theatre itself is nothing much (just a basic, descent theatre). However, it hosts some really talented, young acrobats that give you a 1 hour so that you will remember for a while. True, the young performers are still working on their skills but, the show did not disappoint... More

We visited the Chai Yang Theatre and watched the very talented Chinese performers. From start to finish, the show was amazing. It was very entertaining and definitely well worth doing.

The theater is a bit tired and the performers a bit melancholy. Certainly wasn't a first rate show and had a very touristy vibe. The kids (mostly young performers) were no doubt talented, but appeared indifferent to the whole affair. Had the VIP seats, so was up-close enough to notice the ill-fitting and tattered costumes. Be prepared for a screechy... More

Any visit to Beijing you should hit one of these theaters and watch a show. Very much worth it! Just amazing acrobatics! They put 8 motorcycles in one of those round cages. I've never seen that many in at one time!

We saw two shows in Beijing, the kung Fu show and the acrobatic show and this one was the show to see! It was easy to get tickets the day before the show. The performances were incredible! The beautiful costumes and scenery just added to the entertainment. The talent of the performers was like nothing I had ever seen and... More

What a fantastic show. I am not certain if this is the place so here is the name of the place we went to, Beijing Chaoyang Theatre Acrobatics World. Spectacular performances and the motorcycles in the cage was beyond belief. Get the VIP seats to sit close.

As simple as that. Shanghai has the best shows, but if you are not going to Shanghai and this is your only chance to see acrobatics, then it's a perfect alternative. This year (2016) it has been renovated and it became more grandiose and spectacular.
