Chinese Warriors of Peking presents a historical slant to its new production. Imagine China during the period of the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), when two rival martial arts disciplines compete to be Number 1 in the ancient Chinese capital of Peking.
Under the direction of Qui Jian, this thrilling production recounts the story complete with high-intensity martial arts, breath-taking acrobatics, juggling and live stage combat. This is an awe-inspiring and popular family entertainment that is culturally authentic and highly entertaining for all ages.
