The Peking Acrobats have performed for Western audiences since 1986. The physical prowess of these Chinese acrobats is complemented by lively choreography, with contortionism and cycling flowing seamlessly into gymnastic maneuvers. The Peking Acrobats (with guests JIGU! Thunder Drums of China) will join the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra for two days of rapid-fire visual and auditory entertainment. Jeff Tyzik will conduct the orchestra during the two performances.
The Peking Acrobats will perform with the RPO and JIGU! Thunder Drums of China on Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $16-$92. rpo.org; facebook.com/ThePekingAcrobats.
