We really enjoyed the show! The performers did a great job, however the process of obtaining our tickets at the venue and finding an usher to locate our seats were truly exasperating.

There were many diff forms of martial arts. My favorite was the weapons act. Very impressive, even incorporated children who were also pretty good!
The theater seemed to allow outside drinks so you can bring your own beer.

Don’t leave Beijing without seeing this show! It’s breathtaking. And getting/picking up tickets was very easy.

It was really easy to book using Viator. They had a representative meet us at the theatre and we had her phone number to let her know we were running late. We did not purchase the transfer, but I would now recommend it as the theatre is not near a subway and the taxis outside after the show were charging inflated prices. The cab from our hotel to the show was 44RMB, and the driver after the show wanted 150. We got him down to 100RMB, but who needs the hassle.

The show was exactly as described and well choreographed.

Excellent. The pick-up of tickets was excellent. Be warned - taxis are not simple to find in Beijing especially when it's been raining! - we arrived at the theatre with minutes to spare but our contact was patiently waiting and easy to spot. The show itself is breathtaking, right from the very opening scene. The show is all in English so it is easy to follow. Some of the moves are absolutely incredible. Nice story as well - good mixture of energy and emotion. I loved it and would recommend going. Great way to spend an evening.

Even if everything feels a little too touristy, the performers and martial arts are absolutely fantastic, and to watch all their stunts live is pretty much worthe the price of admission.

I had seen this show about 4 years ago and again it did not disappoint. The show has the same great storyline with lots of new and improved artistic elements. Our family of four really enjoyed the show. Although it was past bedtime my 5 year old was wide awake and riveted throughout the show. I would recommend this show to anyone looking for an evening out in Beijing.

The show as good and very impressive, but the opening was all in Chinese and we had no clue what was being said.

I enjoyed the show except the seating could have been better. We were in the balcony and it was very warm. We were told to wait out front and our guide would meet us with our tickets. Guide zipped up on her bicycle before the show, bought us our tickets at the box office and took us inside. I could have done that myself. Show up a little early as there are a couple of vendors inside. I liked the gentleman who was selling little insects made of woven grass.

This was a nice show with superior feats of martial arts. The performers worked really hard. The show venue was more like a local small theater. We bought some reasonable priced souvenirs. One problem with the Red Theater is transportation leaving. We took a cab to the theater which was cheap and efficient. Leaving however was not. The cabs outside the theater tried to charge us a lot more for a normal cab ride. To help you out of this situation just walk right as you exit the theater past the crooks in the cab line. Walk for a little under ten minutes to a main busy street.I forgot the name of the street but it is the first busy street and you'll be able to see it while you walk. Be patient. Once you get to the busy street there is a McDonalds to the right maybe 70 yards. In front of the McDonalds cabs can be flagged down and their prices are normal.
