The Legend of Kung Fu Show
You'll enjoy a show in the Beijing Red Theatre, found near the Temple of Heaven, where the show has taken place since 2004.

The performers have been through a rigorous countrywide selection process, and have an average age of 17 years old. And the stage dressing and special effects have also been created by the very best designers in China.
