Overview

The Multimedia Theatrical Spectacular 'ERA Intersection of Time' has been performed since its debut at Shanghai Circus World in September 2005. It is unique and comparable to the tradition of the Broadway Musical.It is in fact a stunning acrobatic show combining traditional Chinese arts and modern technologies. The performers present Chinese acrobatics, martial arts and dance perfectly in harmony with the music, sound, lighting, and other special effects, which include a water screen.While you marvel at the highly proficient skills of the performers, the story of China's evolution from its ancient past to the future is told. Hence, the title 'Intersection of Time', as the viewpoint of the audience is set in the present between the past and the future.The performance provides a wonderful insight into China's ancient culture and civilization, with sections about Sinan, an ancient Chinese invention for telling directions, soothsaying and conjuring. There is a fantastic section showing an acrobatic program which has elements performed since the far off days of the Han Dynasty (206BC–220AD). With porcelain jars and vats as their stage properties the performers give an overview of Chinese porcelain culture and greater understand of the country's name of 'China'.Modern achievements that are also showcased include Shanghai Donghai Cross-Sea Bridge, Maglev Train, and Shenzhou 5, China's first manned space mission. From these, you can see the amazing development and bright future of Shanghai and the whole country.The 100-minute performance shows not only artistic skills, but also creativity. Aided by multimedia including vision, original live music, sound effects, smell effect, air conditioning and lighting,

I was truly amazed at the skill and energy of this very exciting troupe. They are the top acrobats anywhere, and the show was spectacular. They perform every night...... very entertaining Only negative - not photos are allowed of the performers or the act.

I wasn't sure about this going into it. The theater is a little run down and in disrepair. However I had heard great things about the show so I decided to check it out. Let me just say that this was a truly amazing show...More

I enjoyed every minute. There are really no bad seats, so no need to spring for the VIP or more expensive seats. The skills of the performers is amazing. What lacks is the artistry that you find with a Cirque du Soleil production. But well...More

We watch the show at the end of our whole day tour. In spite that majority of the folks in our group are exhausted, we did have a great time.

Wonderful evening at the circus. 2 hours performance with a 10 minute intro in comfy seating. More of an artistic and acrobatic performance but still very very impressive with live music both singing and orchestral. Good clean toilet facilities too.

Extremely good performance from all the acrobats. I'm so glad I got to see the show while I was passing through the city. No animals are used it is 100% people and stunts. Definitely worth the money. P.s even the cheaper tickets are good seats......More

I wouldn't say this is a negative review but is not positive either. I read the other reviews before I went so I was quite happy to pay the 450 Yuan, which only the VIP seats were dearer at 700. Even though all of the...More

Did the afternoon show on the Saturday. It was entertaining but won't do it again. Nothing spectacular to deserve a second viewing.

We went to an evening acrobatic show and were totally entralled for the entire performance. Access could be a problem for those with disabilities, but this is a "not to be missed" attraction.

From our concierge, they said ERA has more stunts, more elaborate feats. Happy Circus is geared towards children.
