This celebrated Acrobatic Troupe is from the province of Jinan and is known for their colorful costuming and cutting-edge creation of new acts. For over 18 years the Incredible! Acrobats of China featuring New Shanghai Circus have been entertaining Branson audiences. Visitors use words like "awesome," "wow," "amazing," and more to describe the New Shanghai Circus at Yakov's Theatre. During the Tales of Lotus Lantern you'll see acts like Hat Jugglers, Human Hoops, Flag Man on a Pole, Aerial Ballet, Chair Stack, Human Strength & Beauty, Bicycle, and many more.

Very good show! Some of the contortionist moves were unbelievable! Really liked the bicycle routine, the hats, and jumping through hoops. The strength of those who held up the others was amazing. Would recommend! Be sure to dress warm - building was freezing cold (even with boots, coat, and scarf on).

The show only had 38 people in the audience and I have no idea why! It is amazing to watch!the ticket man said the winter months are slow for them which was to our benefit for sure. These acrobats are simply phenomenal. The training begins at age 6! I highly recommend seeing them ❤️

Beautiful theatre. Those performers are incredible. Awesome acrobats. A must see!! So glad we made the decision to check it out. It doesn't get a lot of publicity but one of the best shows by far.

This is a new show at the Yakov Theatre. It was pure entertainment from the beginning until the end of the show. There were at least 10-12 acts and each one was daring and amazing. Children loved it

My family went to see The Acrobats of China during our recent Branson family vacation and we were all thoroughly entertained. If you are looking to have your breath taken away, this show is a must on your to do list.

The Yakov theater is over-the-top ornate and grandiose but the performers were absolutely amazing! My only complaint was the one fellow who was an amazing master of control on stacked chairs was too high and you could not see him as he was above the curtains. I will bring any guests I ever have in town (since I am a... More
