Amazing! Just when you thought they have reached the limits of physics and human capability, they pull off one more stretch, or one more leap, or one more something or another that just blows you away. Makes Cirque Soleil look like the junior...continued

More Information


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).
