Acrobats of China at Yakov's Theatre are one of the top things to do for fun in Branson! New in 2016 the Acrobats of China showcase one of the best and most elite Chinese Acrobats troupes in Branson in an all-new show: Tales of Lotus Lantern. This celebrated Acrobatic Troupe is from the province of Jinan and is known for their colorful costuming and cutting-edge creation of new acts. For over 18 years the Incredible! Acrobats of China featuring New Shanghai Circus have been entertaining Branson audiences. Visitors use words like "awesome," "wow," "amazing," and more to describe the New Shanghai Circus at Yakov's Theatre. During the Tales of Lotus Lantern you'll see acts like Hat Jugglers, Human Hoops, Flag Man on a Pole, Aerial Ballet, Chair Stack, Human Strength & Beauty, Bicycle, and many more. This is a Branson Show that is Fun for Everyone! Also see the show before the show with a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony conducted in the lobby before every show.

We saw the new Shanghai circus in Maui, and it was truly one of the best shows I've ever seen. Incredible talent, strength, agility, and grace! Extremely inspiring, it left us breathless. It showcases the highest reaches of human physical and mental strength, and we were honored to be able to attend. What a great show!!

This is the second Chinese acrobat show we've seen, and it was definitely the better of the two. The skill, flexibility, strength, coordination, and training involved in the performance of these children and young adults is beyond my comprehension! I definitely recommend this show.

This is one of the best shows in Branson, and there are a lot of good shows! These are young (some very young!) acrobats and the feats they perform will truly amaze you. We've seen the show several times; they change it up a bit, but even if they didn't, it is still great to see over and over. It... More

This is the absolute best show you will ever see. These people are totally phenomenal and you will be on the edge of your seat the entire performance. From the ticket purchase to the Tea Ceremony to after the show where the acrobats sign autographs is absolutely amazing!

Breathtaking show. Take your whole family, from kids and elderly. Unimaginably amazing showmanship. So worth your money to experience the awe of Chinese acrobat skill and technique.

Yes, we watched the entire show with little heat when it was probably close to freezing outside. So make SURE they have the heater fixed before committing to this. The workers didn't know when the heater would be fixed. One thought that they weren't planning to do anything about it anytime soon. So check FIRST. Was an interesting show and... More

Forget America's got talent. Branson has galant and it is housed at the Yakov theater! My wife and I were blown away by these guys and girls. Their youngest performer (at least I assume he is must be around 10) is a natural showman, has no fear and was just such a natural talent. The chair balancer was so graceful... More

In a town full of mediocre entertainment this show really stands out! Jaw dropping stunts and skill. Absolutely a must see if you're looking for. Do anything you can to stay away from the Jim Stafford theater.
