Wonderful show! Some serious feats... terrifying at times

Wonderful show! There were some serious feats of acrobatic prowess ... some of the balancing acts are terrifying at times. Loved it. Well worth the time and money.

We loved this show despite some low expectations thanks to grumpy reviews from Tripadvisor. True, some of the costumes are quite ropey and the music is badly edited and too loud, but the show is spectacular. Isn't that the point?

The evening acrobatic show was absolutely amazing! I was in shock the whole time at their talents...was always afraid that they would fall. It really showed the Chinese culture and what they are capable of.

very Good show, very energetic. Online booking redtheatrekungfu with discount tickets. When buying tickets you are faced with choosing a row in differently priced sections. We chose the center rows with very good view.

Get ready for a treat as some of these feats are hard to believe they are possible! The theatre seemed a bit old, but it was very spacious with plenty of glamour which all added to the original feeling. I will most likely never need go to see western circus after this… my tip is to take the metro to... More

This acrobatic show is recommendable! The performance of the chinese acrobats are amazing. The music and act need to be worked with, this show is a must see in beijing.
