Who doesn’t love the magical aura of the Orient? If you want to experience the culture of the Far East without having to travel overseas? Then you need to make this show a part of your Branson, Missouri experience! Having toured throughout the world, The Amazing Acrobats of Shanghai are considered to be China’s most celebrated acrobatic company and Branson is proud to have this troupe of incredible artists performing at the New Shanghai Theatre right here in the heart of the Ozark Mountains.
You will thrill at the feats of over 40 acrobats as they give elaborate and dramatic interpretations of classic Chinese dances and physical performance art with amazing strength, skill, control, balance, grace, and charisma. The Chinese have been performing this impressive art form since 500 B.C. Through the years it has developed and blossomed into the incredible form of art performed today. This is a show that will be enjoyed by everyone regardless of age!
As the curtain rises, the entire cast is on stage in colorful, authentic Chinese costumes performing dramatic feats that will have you on the edge of your seat. A brightly colored, friendly dragon is the show’s mascot and he winds his way through the acrobats to greet the audience at the end of the first number.
As the show progresses, you will learn about Chinese culture and why certain acts are performed. Roller-skating is as popular in China as it is in America, and you will be amazed at two ladies who do stunts while on skates. The show adds new, award-winning performers every year so there is always a revolving line-up of amazing acts. This extraordinary group of professionals brings the Orient to the Ozarks through their performance art as well as through dramatic music, stunning backdrops, gorgeous costumes, and state of the art lighting.
The Kansas City Star says, "The talents of the Shanghai acrobats are beyond compare . . . watch these acrobats and be stunned and thrilled." This show is something your entire family will enjoy! The production is fast paced, exciting, and when the curtain falls after the final act, it will leave you with wanting more!
