The theatre itself was very clean and easy to get around. The show and its story was wonderful. Very glad we went to see it.

It was not that attractive, not that special for the kids and for us. We expected a lot more Kung fu performances.

Although we enjoyed the storyline and the minimal kung fu moves shown, overall we were quite disappointed with the amount of ballet and fakeness of the whole thing. I would recommend skipping this if you have limited time.

Thorough enjoyed the experience. Great entertainment and skills of the monks. I was apprehensive at first thinking it might be a cheesy tourist trap trip, but it wasn’t. Highly recommend.

Once the legend of the monk is explained, the story line was excellent. A very moving performance indeed. The lighting and back drops are excellent and integral with the story. A must see experience while visiting Beijing.
