When our friends Wendy and Mike bought their airplane tickets to Shanghai, they asked if we wanted to see ERA. They are a huge fan of acrobatic shows like Circ de Soleil. The hubs and I have never been to one and we’ve been talking about doing things in Shanghai that we normally haven’t done.
The auditorium was on the smaller side, which is great, so you could see everything rather close. We bought the best tickets available and it wasn’t more than maybe $100 or so American dollars. TOTALLY WORTH THE PRICE. We sat in the front row, right in the middle. They had snacks and drinks that you could buy and bring into the auditorium.
It was charming, it was beautiful, we gasped and I would love to see this again! Our friends who absolutely love Circ de Soleil were blown away, they said that ERA is so much better. There were so many moments where I grabbed Wendy’s arm and screamed “OMG!!!!!!!!” because I was amazed and baffled by how they were performing, it looked IMPOSSIBLE.
Photography and video recording is absolutely prohibited. Did I take those pictures? No, I wish I had.. I took a picture of the pictures that were hanging in the hall outside the auditorium. When I looked at these pictures, it was the same performers! I can’t believe how spectacular this whole show was. They even had an intermission and thank goodness they did. I RAN to the bathroom because it was so suspenseful for me.
Have you seen any acrobatic shows? If so, what and did you like it? If not, what would you like to see?
I’m hoping to go to more acrobatic shows in the future! It was so much fun.
