China’s world famous Cirque Peking is holding a 2 p.m. matinee show on Sept. 7 at the University of Victoria’s Farquhar Auditorium.

The time was revised from a 7 p.m. performance due to scheduling conflicts.

Since 1999, the company has created several productions that have been performed almost four thousand times around the world.

For the 2014 North American tour, the company will bring a brand new production that promises to “amaze and astound lucky audiences.”

The company was founded in 1951 and has won multiple international awards.

Tickets are $35.99 for adults, $25.99 for students and $15.99 for children.

A family pack that includes two adults and two children is also available for $100.
