    Peking Acrobats in Long Beach

    Thrill to athletic skills and graceful movements, at the Carpenter Center on Saturday, Jan. 21.

    IT IS BUT FOR ONE NIGHT, so secure a ticket (they start at $35) to see the troupe in person. The performers have been visiting points around the globe for over three decades now, and their show often includes such diverse elements as a unicycle (several acrobats ride at once) to stackable chairs (a centerpiece of the Peking Acrobats' eye-amazing spectacular) to plate spinning (flat-out fabulous). Chinese lions have cameo'd in the past, too, making this a history- and art-laden treat as we approach the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Rooster. Tickets? Find your seat here and prepare to admire polished acrobat-tastic feats aplenty.
