With some friends visiting from overseas lately we decided to check out the carnival scene in town and visit the Shanghai Circus. I believe there are a few different circus acts and can’t compare the carnies we saw to other establishments featuring small-handed, cabbage-smelling, triangle-fingered folk around town.
What I can say is that the Shanghai Circus at Circus World was pretty cool. The production included some amazing acts (I won’t spoil it) with a fantastic light and video show. It’s well choreographed and the music is produced live as well – live vocals, bass, drums, and more. If you don’t have to pick your jaw off the ground before walking out then you’re hard to please.
With some more friends expected to visit this year I’m adding this to the Shanghai leg of the tour. Unfortunately, you’re not allowed to take photos of the performance so here is a glimpse of what to expect.
What: Shanghai Circus
Where: Shanghai Circus World, Gong He Xin Road. It’s got it’s own stop on Metro Line 1. Walk out from the Metro and you can’t miss it.
When: Every Night at 7.30
How Much:Tickets vary between 80-580RMB. We had the 180RMB tickets and were more than happy. The arena isn’t that big to really warrant paying more.
