Feats of agility and a LOT of balance. These acrobats must practice all of the time to do what they do. Spinning plates, chair balancing, cut balancing, acrobatics, etc. A true feast for the eyes.

Astonishing feats by a talented group of performers, many of whom were kids. I had a great time!

They sure tried hard, but made so many mistakes, I lost count. I was just glad none were tragic as they did pull off some great stunts. My elderly Mom loved it and wasn't bothered by the goofs. But I had to wonder how well the performers are...continued

The venue has great settings wherever you are seated. However, it was VERY hot inside. The performers were great, however, listening to the monotonous sounds played on a one-string instrument was a torture. We left after the first part...

Beautiful and cool. I saw the show with my parents probably 30 years ago. It seemed even more dangerous and wild then, but that's probably because I was young. Still a great show.

A phenomenal performance showcasing amazing skills. However, some of the tricks seemed too dangerous to perform, so this is not for the faint of heart.

MInd boggling performances, as per usual. I attended with 7 & 10 year olds and spouse, and we all chose different acts as favorites. Nice variety of silly, fun, intense, beautiful... The 8pm show didn't end until after 10, so I'd choose a...continued

The Peking Acrobats were 5-star! The show was awesome, literally breathtaking, and a thrill-a-minute, with hardly a chance to catch one's breath. Staging, costumes, props, incredible acts made our experience totally satisfying. . . even though we...continued

My wife and I were very happy with the seats and then the show was spectacular. It was like a Cirque du Soleil show without some of the props. Besides the amazing acrobatic feats, the percussions were fantastic.

Boring... stunts were simple and sometimes teased as if they were going to get more complex, but then didn't. Comedy was very light. Wouldn't necessarily recommend even for kids. I don't care about mistakes, but many tricks were botched. I also...continued
