New Shanghai Circus - a must see
Apr 2014 • Couples
I thought it would be full of acts I've seen before but no! It was great. there were some "old" acts but even those had twists. And each act was unique and so well done. Really really recomend it.

Jawdropping acts make for an unforgettable night
Oct 2013 • Family
Also know as the New Shanghai Circus booked through our hotel, the Chinese name of the theatre is the BaiYuLan Theatre and we had 2 ticket options 200 yuan for standard and 280 yuan for 'VIP' tickets which we went for (which means a central and closer seat to the stage). The theatre is centrally located in the Huangpu District and fairly nondescript as a venue but as we were about to experience all the wow-factor remains on the stage!
It would be remiss of me to explain all 10 or so acts in vivid detail.You really need to go, sit back and watch the troupe of about 20-22 men and women perform some incredible acts of balance,flexibility,coordination,daring,strength and showmanship and appreciate you are witnessing the best in the world do so with apparent effortless and flawless ease.
We really had a brilliant time and are still raving about it a few days afterwards. I am surprised there are not more reviews and it may not be profiled as well as it should on Tripadvisor.
Given that this attraction has a predominately tourist audience I was surprised and would also recommend a brochure or momento that could be sold.Given that there is a clear message not to photograph or video then I am sure these would get snapped up.
Awesome night and a breathtaking 90 mins that flew by and can not recommend highly enough!!

Breathtaking
Apr 2013 • Couples
There are several acrobat shows in Shanghai apparently, but we were told the one at the Magnolia Theatre is the best. We paid 280 yuan per person through our hotel for the show ticket which included transport from and to our hotel. The ticket itself had no price on it so we cannot say what mark up 280 represents. I cannot believe there are better acrobat shows anywhere in the world. It lasts 90 minutes and contains about 10 acts. The finale was unreal - 5 motor cycles inside the Ball of Death. As there had been 2 mishaps in the earlier acts - one of the arial acrobats fell ten feet but landed on his feet and one of the spinning plates fell off - mistakes were clearly possible which, in the Ball of Death would be fatal. So half the audience dare not look.

Great Show
Oct 2011
This is also called Bai Yu Lan theatre.
The show is gorgeous, in a fairly ordinary theatre.
I think that anyone who's been to a Chinese acrobat show before will expect some of the acts (plate spinning, 10 girls on a bike, Ball of Death etc), but it was really beautifully done, and the acts are truly, breathtakingly impressive.
Highly recommended.
