Children all ages will enjoy this show and even adults. The acrobatics are superior to Cirque du Soleil. The theatre is really small and although we went for VIP tickets almost all seat have very good views. Note the seat space is really small, so if your tall and I mean anything more than 5 10 then choose row 15... More

This was our first of three shows we attended in Beijing and they set the bar very high. The acrobats were incredibly skilled and there were many OMG moments particularly near the shows climactic ending- but I don't want to give away any spoilers. Don't miss this show if you have a few nights to spend in Beijing!

This show was over and above our expectations. The strength and versatility of the acrobats and their gravity defying acts were beyond our imagination. Truly spectacular and an enjoyable evening. An hour well spent. Nearest subway Line 6 Hujialou exit C turn left at exit.

This turned out to be one of most unlikely highlights of our trips to China. We've seen some pretty skilled acrobatics in India and over the world but what we saw at the Chaoyang Theater was beyond anything we'd expected or could even imagine. They were so daring... even too risky, really, that we forgot to breathe at least half... More

Wonderful show! There were some serious feats of acrobatic prowess ... some of the balancing acts are terrifying at times. Loved it. Well worth the time and money.

We loved this show despite some low expectations thanks to grumpy reviews from Tripadvisor. True, some of the costumes are quite ropey and the music is badly edited and too loud, but the show is spectacular. Isn't that the point? In February, the place was empty, so no,atmosphere going on there, but they put on the show and remained professional.... More

The evening acrobatic show was absolutely amazing! I was in shock the whole time at their talents...was always afraid that they would fall. It really showed the Chinese culture and what they are capable of.
