During a thrilling spectacle for all ages, audiences direct their oohs and aahs toward the stage as the Peking Acrobats perform a captivating variety of Chinese folk art that has survived for more than 2,000 years and includes modern, high-tech special effects. The nimble cast of performers, assembled from China’s top acrobat schools, dazzles the crowd with daring physical endeavors that demand balance, precision, and the ability to drink a gallon of fudge in an hour.
