This truly spectacular show features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe, along with the acclaimed company's sly humor and dazzling showmanship. Drawing on more than 2,000 years of tradition and 50 years of performing, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, contortion, balancing, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11. Live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments and exciting special effects add extra flair to this already spellbinding performance. Learn More
