“I was skeptical, but do not miss this, it is fabulous”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This show provided one of the most memorable evenings of our entire China trip. Fortunately we arrived some time before the start of the performance and were able to watch the cast putting on their elaborate makeup. Several members of the audience opted to be made up as well, including our (adult) daughter, all done in a great spirit of fun.

Having sat through many interminable 'cultural shows', my expectations were not that high. But we were all dazzled and enthralled by the variety and quality of the performers (the acts themselves have already been well described by another reviewer). Even the comedy acts, which we could not fully understand, were very amusing and well done. Several other acts were unique and amazing.

We had ordered food with our seats and were provided with a pleasant meal and drinks.

Photography is allowed, so be prepared (the stage is very brightly lit and the costumes very colorful, so even smart phones get good stills and videos).

If you are in Chengdu, don't miss this.

“Amazing show”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

I was not sure about spending our last night in China at this show but I am so glad we did. The costumes were so beautiful, the puppeteer very clever, the hand shadow man amazing and the I am sure that the comedy sketch was very funny if you could understand it (it was still good entertainment). However, the highlight of the show was the costume and mask changing act, it was jaw dropping and even when the performers stood a couple of feet from us we could not see how they did it............AMAZING.
