Chinese State Circus

Get ready for some eye-popping entertainment in Buxton later this month, when the internationally acclaimed Chinese State Circus arrives. The famous circus troupe will be on stage with their innovatively spectacular new production Dynasty.

30 world class Chinese acrobats, aerial artistes and jugglers will tour to Buxton Opera House along with the legendary Shaolin Warriors, who are known as true masters of martial arts, stunning audiences with their super-human physical skills and dexterity.

The nonstop action from start to finish offers thrill after thrill, and is said to bring to stage what seems impossible, and making it a reality. This latest production returns to the pure and honest perfection in acrobatics upon which their reputation is based, boasting a show with no gimmicks fakes or retakes.

The history of the Chinese State Circus itself spans 25 years and was first conceived in the mind of Creative Director Phillip Gandey after he witnessed a group of Oriental acrobats performing at the Monte Carlo Circus Festival. He was astounded at the quality, depth and sheer diversity of such Chinese Acrobatic Troupes and set about taking them on tour.

Chinese State Circus Saturday 17 September at 2.30pm and 6pm. Tickets £28 for Adults and £12 for Children. To buy tickets or for more information please call the box office on 01298 72190 or visit
