“Best show in Shanghai”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We had heard about the acrobatic shows in china, but never spent the time to see one live. This is stunning, especially when you see it in the second row, and can nearly touch the artists. All seats are good, don't need to buy the most expensive, the category below is great. All the acrobatics are spectacular, the gymnasts are top notch (you understand why they get so many gold medals...). The last show with the motorbikes in the metallic sphere, while not new in its concept, was remarkable and threatening: you have to see this. The guy who is throwing potteries, weigthing from a few pounds at the start up to the biggest pot, likely at least 20 pounds, to get it back on his bald head is impressive...when you see him after the show, you better understand the impact on his scalp...No pictures, as this is strictly forbidden, but the artists wait for you at the exit for pictures and videos. Great evening to recommend with kids or with guests from outside China.

“Good nights entertainment”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The music is beautiful, the women performers enchanting ad the acrobatics entertaining. Well worth the visit. Tip: All seats are good don't splash out unnecesarily - buy the cheapest for best value.

“Interesting experience, to say the least”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

The show was good, not great, but it was the crowd that really had us stunned. People in the audience were talking out loud like they were in a loud restaurant. So strange. Not just one group, this happened all throughout the whole theater. They were not even watching the show. It was odd.

“A bit drab”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

More like a school of acrobats. It needed better costumes and a bit better organization.
Don't get me wrong they were very clever and amazingly talented, but just lacked the class.

“What fun!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

You have probably seen them on television, but if you can see them in person, go! They are very graceful and beautiful to watch. The show was not too long, the seats are comfy. It was fun. How do they not bump one another in that ball?? On motorcycles?
