The Deal

The Peking Acrobats

The Peking Acrobats soar onto stage prepared to astound audiences with gravity-defying stunts and spellbinding aerial antics. Since making their Western debut in 1986, the Chinese-based masters of marvel have helped infuse modern culture with their unique, ancient art form, sweeping across major U.S. television networks and swinging through venues worldwide. A live Chinese orchestra accompanies each gasp-worthy step with whimsical measures while colorfully costumed performers balance atop pencil-thin wires, ride elevated cycles, and contort their bodies into the phone numbers of ex-sweethearts. Elaborate stage props add striking visuals to the unfolding spectacle, backing jugglers and gymnasts with surprising twists throughout the show.

Mayo Performing Arts Center

The Mayo Performing Arts Center straddles time. While one foot is planted in the old-fashioned charm of the 1930s movie-palace golden age, the other is firmly in the tech-savvy modern day. Between is a stretch of history that saw the theater fall into disrepair and then resurrect itself to its star-studded heyday thanks to volunteers. Since its 1994 rebirth, the center has welcomed everyone from the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg to Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. But, if the Mayo Center were a tripod, its third foot would certainly reach toward the future—a suite of education studios is on site to cultivate the next generation of performers.

Customer Reviews

The shoe was lot of fun. Arrive early, there are lot of places to eat before the show and you can get a nice parking spot.
