Board your motorcoach and transfer to the Shanghai Center Theater or similar class theater. Located near the elegantly towering Ritz-Carlton Hotel, the theater is the site for this evening’s exciting event. Ancient stone carvings, earthen pottery and early written works trace the ancestry of today’s spectacular acts to an era long since vanished. Confucius’ father was an acrobat and strongman of unrivaled strength whom, it is claimed, lifted 1,000-pound city gates to let an army storm through. It was during the Han Dynasty, more than 2,000 years ago, that China saw its first acrobats, magicians and jugglers. Acrobats with incredible balance and amazing displays of strength sprang from the annual village harvest celebrations. Building on the traditional performance, today’s artists have added new techniques and spectacular stunts to thrill audiences around the globe. Highly skilled, rigorously trained and superbly talented, these performances follow an unbroken tradition since 200 B.C..
