The second best thing we saw or spent money on in Beijing after the Wall! Pretty much every act had us laughing or amazed, you really do have to see and experience this show. We paid 280rmb for seats in row 16 in the middle and were not disappointed. You dont need to spend any more than this to get good seats in this theatre. The show was relatively short at an hour, but we left saying "that was amazing!".

Went here with 3 coworkers after all the rave reviews. Our hotel put us in the "VIP section" for $70 which I found annoying since the theater wasn't big and those seats are totally not necessary. The acts themselves were pretty good, but there isn't much stage production. And they make the performers do these horrible dances which was so cheesy we were laughing more than cheering. The show was about 75 mins, and they had intermission about 45 mins in and then came back for less than 30 mins which was strange. Kids would enjoy it, but for anyone who has seen Cirque, it's just not going to compare and be a big letdown.

A must see despite being labelled as touristy.The auditorium is a dated structure but well laid out.You can get a good view from any of the seats.Donot buy the much costlier middle row seat tickets.Preferably book in advance.

The content has changed since i last saw it in 2010.The artistes are world class and so is the act.Spare an evening whilst in Beijing.Its worth the time and money.The highlight is the motorcyclists who go around in a dome.You cant cheer them enough.

Dont forget to buy the CD of the show.

One hour of excitement. Though many items are what we see in various circusses, still it is interesting. The 7 motor cycles inside a cage is really breathtaking. Don't miss to buy the CD for 50 Yuans
