The Golden Dragon Acrobats from China will perform Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hart Auditorium at Brigham Young University-Idaho.

The acrobats represent the best of a time-honored tradition that began more than 25 centuries ago. The reputation of the company is solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form.

In November 2005, the Golden Dragon Acrobats made their Broadway debut to a sold-out audience at the New Victory Theater, New York's ultimate theater for children and families. Their Broadway run over the next six weeks led to adoration and standing ovations from audiences of all ages and universal critical acclaim from the New York press.

World-renowned impresario Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music, and theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty.

Tickets for the Center Stage Performing Arts Series event are $12 for the general public and $6 for BYU-Idaho students. An extra preshow dinner can be purchased for an additional $15. Tickets may be purchased at the BYU-Idaho Ticket Office by calling 496-3170, or online at www.byui.edu/tickets.
