Saw a performance in 2016 and loved it. (See my July 16, 2016 review.) On this visit, I was delighted to see some of my favourite acts repeated, plus colourful new routines and costumes. There is no intermission, so plan your bathroom stops accordingly.

Thoroughly entertaining with at least twenty different acts ranging from Covent Garden style juggling to Circe de soleil acrobatics. The show caters to a western audience with a few gags along the way. Well worth a visit if you have a spare night up your...More

Depends on your expectations. If you are expecting something cultural you will be disappointed. The performers are incredible, the stunts amazing. Like watching America's Got Talent in person.

Most of the acts are pretty good. A couple were a bit hokey like the magic act. Some of the stuff quite typical. Other acts were spectacular. We especially liked the guy that could stand from a split without rolling or using any hand support....More

We went to see the acrobatic show in this beautiful theatre located in/ adjacent to a glitzy hotel. The show was amazing and performers mind blowing.

Amazing performances by all of the participants. Would not surprise me to learn that they were ex Olympians. Great humour in one of the segments when a "volunteer" from the audience was subjected to a blindfolded knife thrower.

We stumbled upon the ticket kiosk outside the Shanghai Centre. Don’t pay for expensive tickets. Ask for tickets in the front rows of the balcony. They are the cheapest but have the best view as you are able to see everything clearly. This show does...More

Totally loved this show. One of the best ever seen. There was also some magic performances in between the acrobats. Show lasts for 1 1/2 hours with no intermission. No food or drink allowed in theatre. Prebook your tickets to get good seats.

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
residents but displays a more commercial character.
Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
