Amazing all around. Very well paced with excellent transitions between acts. They were all spectacular. There were a few re-dos yet these are humans performing very difficult tasks. The music was great too. Balcony seats are wonderful esp....continued

Description

Direct from China, the Peking Acrobats — the largest and most acclaimed group of its kind — have for more than 50 years held audiences spellbound with vibrant presentations of their ancient folk art. The performance features live musical accompaniment from an accomplished Chinese ensemble, and promises to range “from the seemingly impossible to the virtually unbelievable” (Los Angeles Times).
