The show is about a little girl who accidentally opens a magic music box and then starts her adventure.Guy Caron, one of the founders of the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil directs the show.

Hoop diving, pole climbing and hat tricks.The combination of acrobatics and performances also raise the bar for the actors.

Dong Youmin,director of Beijing Acrobatics Troupe,said, “Chinese acrobats used to put techniques first. What they lack is communication with the audience,especially through facial expressions. It takes quite a long time for them to get the idea of how to perform.”

Apart from acrobatics, the production team also puts a lot of thought into the music played throughtout the show. Drummers sometimes even give spontaneous improvisational performances to add more energy.
