MANILA, Philippines - Splendide!, the Chinese National Acrobatic Circus, will be in Manila for a series of 18 shows at the Araneta Coliseum from Dec. 25 to Jan. 2, 2011. The show is expected to become one of this year’s most spectacular family entertainment acts.

The Chinese National Acrobatic Circus, China’s oldest, has come a long way since the days when Chinese acrobatics was all stunts and no art. Today, its act is billed as “the artistic conception acrobatics.” The two-hour action-packed show includes 13 acts guaranteed to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. It will highlight performers climbing and jumping between tall poles to the beat of drums, plates spinning three at a time atop slender sticks, somersaulting on a wire and various balancing maneuvers. The show will also feature the Amazing Peacock Pyramid where performers ride on a bicycle in an inverted triangle formation, holding huge colorful fans to look like a colorful peacock on a bicycle.

Over 100 award-winning acrobats, jugglers, aerialists and contortionists will be in this thrilling event as seen in the Beijing Olympics. The group will bring with it the award-winning acts fused with mesmerizing sounds and lights. The thrilling finale bagged the Golden Clown Award in International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo. Splendide was designated by China’s Ministry of Culture as the National Acrobatic Troupe. 

Araneta Center, known as the country’s premier lifestyle and entertainment hub offering a one-stop shopping, dining and entertainment experience, presents the amazing show for the whole family.
