“Good show by talented performers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This show didn't disappoint. Although many parts of the performance were similar to what we had seen elsewhere, you can't not appreciate the skill and hard work that these athletes displayed. In fact many acts were unique and deserved the sore hands we experienced from our clapping.

The seating arrangement of the theater was good and there is probably not a really bad seat in the house. Also, good bathrooms downstairs.

We were surprised to see that the performers were not the very young gymnasts that we were used to seeing in the Olympics. I understood that these shows are typically staged by the talented students from the sports schools that are not talented enough to represent China on the world's stages. Pretty damn good anyway.

“Fun night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Typical acrobatic performance but truly talented performers. I agree with other reviews, there isn't really a bad seat. I will say the VIP seats really were front, center and very close up so if you enjoy that - go for it! We took the Metro from Nanjing East - only one switch, very easy and when you come upground from the metro at Shanghai Circus, the huge building it right there. You buy tickets downstairs but our hotel called before (it was a Sat night) and reserved two tickets for us. We paid the 300 and were pleased with our seats. Enjoy!

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

On 4th April I had a chance to go there to the show. It was average. I found nothing very special in this show. However 3 or 4 out of around 22 varieties can be said as excellent. Sitting arrangements were average. Since there were no breaks in between and it is inconvenient to go out of your sit to get something refreshing for this long time of show, I felt somewhat bored. No complimentary soft drink arrangements were there. If you have spare time only, in Shanghai you can opt for the show.

“Fun evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

good acrobatics, especially some of the younger ones. Our Tour Guide estimated one of the girls was probably under 10 years old.
Always fun watching motorcycles going around in a cage. Easy to get excellent seats, we were in 4th row which was also the most expensive.
