TWO THOUSAND years of tradition is set to explode onto the Buxton Opera House stage with the highly-awaited return of China’s greatest circus.
The Chinese State Circus™ bring the 53-date theatre tour of their all-new production Yin Yang to the Water Street venue next month, featuring the most daring, breath-taking and thrilling artistes to tour the UK.
This unique extravaganza showcases only the best in entertainment; witness acrobats defying gravity in an array of elaborate, explosive and highly choreographed presentations of power, poise and agility.
Yin Yang will not only keep the audience on the edge of their seats but show the more delicate and beautiful side of Chinese tradition with plate spinning, parasol juggling, an eye-catching Lion Dance and the amazing legendary Bicycle Act in which ten talented artistes manoeuvre onto a single bicycle. Then there’s The Oriental Swan, a fusion of aerial ballet, physical strength, balance and inspiring creativity.
Witness the unpredictable and exhilarating twists of foot juggling with drums, the famous Chinese poles, sensational contortionist and the dynamic hoop divers with their amazing somersaults, leaps and jumps which all go towards completing this action-packed programme.
Suitable for an audience of all ages, the production boasts evocative sets, a soaring musical score and extravagant new costumes that will entertain the entire family long after the final curtain falls.
