If you miss it you don’t miss much. About one and a half hour show of skill and strength. Nothing great about it. The show is a fine act of acrobatic feats without any risk with comic acts to keep the audience entertained. Even the audience get to take part in the show. As animal acts are banned in china, no animal is in the show. There is nothing which reflects Chinese art or performance.

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 sleeve.

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. WOW !

Not a bad show all in all but admittedly not a must see.

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.

The acrobatics performed were very professional and dazzling to watch. How they performed such acrobatic feats were beyond comprehension. The costumes were beautiful, as were the backdrops.
Would I recommend it as a must venue to visit while in Shanghai, well no but hey I have been there done that.

I have to be honest i wasnt sure how this circus slash variety show was going to turn out. Ive seen these shows before and given it was all cirque du soleil ripoffs i wasnt expecting much. This show did surprise me especially some of the extraordinary acts they pulled off but somehow it felt like ive seen this before on chinas got talent. I think they got the best of chinas got talent and took a little inspiration from some guys who got fired from cirque du soleil and hired ex Olympians to perform it all. Overall it was pretty good 4 stars.

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 not have glitz and glamour but the skill, strength, balance and talent on show is well worth a visit.
