Acrobats of China at Yakov's Theatre are one of the top things to do for fun in Branson! New in 2016 the Acrobats of China showcase one of the best and most elite Chinese Acrobats troupes in Branson in an all-new show: Tales of Lotus Lantern. This celebrated Acrobatic Troupe is from the province of Jinan and is known for their colorful costuming and cutting-edge creation of new acts. For over 18 years the Incredible! Acrobats of China featuring New Shanghai Circus have been entertaining Branson audiences. Visitors use words like "awesome," "wow," "amazing," and more to describe the New Shanghai Circus at Yakov's Theatre. During the Tales of Lotus Lantern you'll see acts like Hat Jugglers, Human Hoops, Flag Man on a Pole, Aerial Ballet, Chair Stack, Human Strength & Beauty, Bicycle, and many more.

A most enjoyable experience. The children acrobats stole the show, especially the young boy who climbed to the top of the pyramid, then grinned at the audience to show how pleased he was with himself. The young girl acrobat was fearless and proud of her acrobatic skills.

Before I traveled to Branson, this show was not on my list. I didn't know anything about the show until at the resort they told that I should go there and so I did. It was WOW amazing. Nice coordination between the actors and even if something goes wrong still they are outstanding. I would recommend to go and watch... More

The talent, the theater and the energy was magnificent. This is a slow week in Branson, so the theater was about 15% full, so we had an up close and personal experience. The talent of these young performers is amazing.

This was an action packed performance that kept us spellbound. The acrobats were attired in beautiful costumes & performed each act so well. They were dating feats executed with speed & accuracy. The theatre was well designed, clean, & the staff was courteous. A good performance to take your family to.

The Yakov Smirnoff theater was comfortable, show was the perfect length for children, the acrobats were very engaging with the audience....loved the costumes and the routine...tickets bought on AllAccessBranson the day before, picked up the tickets right before the show. Great way to spend a couple of hours in Branson....

Wonderful skills. We had many moments on the edge of our seats. We loved the hat juggling men, women spinning drums with their feet, and the "change clothes while juggling" men the best (don't worry, they keep their workout shorts on). The tiniest female does some solo work at the end that was truly fantastic including balancing on 2 stacks... More

This was a first time experience in terms of shows in Branson. The show itself was phenomenal. It is very obvious that these folks take significant pride in training hard and give 150% in their performing! The talent these young acrobats exhibit is beyond amazing. The show incorporates skill, beautiful costumes, and lots of laughs. All ages are sure to... More

If your in Branson when they are in Branson, definitely stop by and see them! There is never a dull moment for the whole length of the show. All of my family loved it and there was plenty of leg room. Definitely worth the price of admission!
