What an amazing acrobatic show and having seen a dozen Cirque de Soleil shows over time I can see a number of acts coming from this. I went 9 years ago and the show itself has improved. motorcycles are brilliant as are the bicycles, the hats, the mask face person...I could go on. This is a MUST see show in Beijing. However booking tickets isn't easy and they can rip you off. I paid 700rmb for VIP seats but you can get them much cheaper if you search. The show was packed because it appears to me they fill ALL empty seats cheaply to Chinese people from all over. Sadly when I thought I had some peace I ended up having a bunch of rowdy Chinese from the villages who were loud. Everyone used their phones to photograph and talk regardless of what security said. The place was grubby and smelt and I'm sure one of the people around me peed themselves. So the aesthetics of the guests killed the show for me at times. This should have rated a 5+. The staff doesn’t care much for anything really. So the TIP is. Buy a cheap ticket as you can see well from everywhere. Get ready for around 75 minutes of nonstop action. I can get more value from a cirque show otherwise.
