Sat in row 6 for this entertaining show of acrobatic and gymnastic skills performed with perfection. Very similar to modern circus acts and nothing really new, especially the plate spinning act. The theatre is bright and modern with comfortable seating.

We had seats about 5th row. Show runs about 1 hr 20 mins and each act is better than the next. Great for kids and teens. Truly incredible ability of these acrobats. Worth seeing and a fun family night out.

We enjoyed the acrobatic show on display at the Shanghai Centre Theatre. Lovely ambience, with its location at the Portman Ritz Carlton hotel, surrounded by the nice buildings of Nanjing West!

We attended the Shanghai Acrobatics show, but it was as much a variety show as an acrobats show. The show certainly included acrobatics, but offered comedy relief between acrobats, and also juggling. The feats of the acrobats are legendary, and some are hard to believe...More

Booked this show on recommendation of a tour company and Trip Advisor reviews. We found it entertaining but only moderately so. It was an eclectic mix of acrobatics, magic and juggling/circus-like acts. A bit hard to categorize. All the acts had some entertainment value but...More

Matthew Bourne's "Sleeping Beauty" was brilliantly choreographed and performed in the spacious Shanghai musical theatre centre in Shanghai Culture Square. Well worth investing in good seats (300¥) from where you get uninterrupted views of the vast multi-functional stage. Comfortable and roomy seats, fresh facilities but...More

What a fantastic show! Such energy and variety. Some of the acrobats/ gymnasts were unbelievable but there was also a wide range of acts to keep us entertained, including a "family" juggling large (and very heavy) vases!! The gymnasts were astonishing.

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
residents but displays a more commercial character.
Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
