Great show. Many diverse acts. Many times I wondered just how they did that. The amount of practice and training must be phenomenal.

Some practical points:
Exit subway station using Exit C1. Theatre is about 100m down the road. Ticket office is on the street

Avoid the cheapest tickets because you'll be too close to the stage. Any of the others should be good. I probably over paid at 380RMB.

The theatre was about 25% full tonight (12/14/2013). Which allowed people to spread out.

Pictures are forbidden but most people took shoot or even video anyway...

If you've seen a the acrobats in Shanghai, this show is very similar.

The motorcycle finale is truly spectacular!!!

“How Many Ladies can Get on One Bicycle”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

This would have to be one of the most spectacular acrobatic shows in the world. When you first enter the theatre looks old (but clen) and you wonder what you will see.
Then the show starts and ti has you holding your breath from start to finish. The answer to the title is 23, yes 23! You have to see it to believe it.]

In the lobby there is art to buy. The most entertaining was a lady who paints landscapes using the dies of her hands, palms and finger tips. She is incredible to wact.

Decidedly a great evening. Although you are presented with different ticket choices - Take the VIP seats as these are centre front and give the best view. Ticket prices vary depending where and when you buy them. Most hotels sell tickets and they will pick you up from the hotel and return you.

A must see in Beijing.....

“worth a visit to get a taste of chinese acrobatic live in front of your eyes !”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

love my 1 hour moment here..my heart keeps beating and beating and everytime a segment ends i will anxiously waiting for the next trick..
my fav is the chair up and a single man balancing his body to the top..
there were many acts that won awards at national and international level and they will highlight it during the show..

seat is comfortable, my guide purchased us the ticket . we were seated at the left row. And i went for the 7PM show.

all in all, if you have extra time in Beijing then its worth a visit. If not perhaps you can go to the main visist area first and this can be an optional pick ;)
