Information provided by Walton Arts Center about The National Circus and Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China:
Peking (today known as Beijing), the capital of the People’s Republic of China, is a famous city with a history spanning 1,000 years and a wealth of precious Chinese cultural heritage, including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven. Acrobatic art, Chinese circus and Peking Opera are Chinese cultural treasures that are beloved among the people of Peking. These art forms combine music, acrobatics, performance, mime and dance, and share many similarities with Western culture. Foreign tourists walking along the streets or strolling through the parks of Peking can often hear natives singing beautiful Peking opera, see them playing diabolo or see them performing other acrobatics.
