Direct from the People's Republic of China, the Peking Acrobats are renowned cultural ambassadors and since 1958 have toured the world, leaving audiences spellbound by the thrilling presentation of their ancient folk arts. With live musical accompaniment from an exotic Chinese musical ensemble, these elite gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists, and tumblers—all carefully selected from the finest schools in China—transform 2000-year-old athletic disciplines into an all-ages kaleidoscope of entertainment and wonder. "At no time have we seen anything like the Peking Acrobats! Feats of clowning, dexterity, grace, and strength rippled from the stage...one was left waterlogged in wonder" (Chicago Tribune).
