This truly spectacular show not only features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe -- but you may be more than pleasantly surprised by the company's display of sly humor, dazzling color and great music. Drawing on more than 2000 years of tradition, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, plate-twirling, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11.

Very fun and enjoyable evening. Goldstar gave us practically front row seats. The Battlefield musicians were not only adept and virtuosos, but all had a wry sense of Scottish humor that the audience warmed to very quickly. Lets put a Tartan vest or Tam O'Shanter on the at least the bagpiper to give it more of a theme and viewing pleasure for the audience.
See the band the Washington Post describes as “contagious Celtic funk.” Named after the Battlefield section of Glasgow, the group is credited with leading the revival of Scottish traditional music blending new songs and old and featuring modern instruments with blazing bagpipes and fiddle.
