    Golden Dragon Acrobats

    Wowing audiences internationally since 1967, the Golden Dragon Acrobats are widely recognized as one of the preeminent Chinese acrobatic companies in the world. The artists draw their costumes and choreography from the last 2,000 years of Chinese history, but can make centuries-old traditions seem futuristic. That sort of achievement takes time; luckily, the acrobats have honed their show for decades. The New York Times says the performers “know how to keep topping themselves,” and they do just that during a two-hour show packed with amazing spectacles and traditional dancing set to ancient and contemporary music.

    Those spectacles vary from show to show, but the artistry never wavers. Holding four plates aloft on poles in each hand, a crew of spinners keeps their dishes circulating even when balancing upside down, whereas a contortionist remains stone-still to balance pyramids of champagne glasses on the bottom of her raised foot. Jumpsuit-clad acrobats climb into the centers of large hoops, coaxing them into stage-encircling rolls, and others assume gravity-defying poses atop towers of chairs and precarious ladders.

    Pabst Theater

    Captain Frederick Pabst contributed to Milwaukee’s status as a cultural landmark of the upper Midwest by building Pabst Theater, formally known as Das Neue Deutsche Stadt-Theater, in 1895. According to legend, when he was informed that his theater had burned to the ground, the brewing magnate interrupted his European vacation to wire home the order to “Rebuild at once!”—and 11 months later, the stage was completed anew. Where the old theater honored German artists by having their names inscribed along the cornice of the auditorium, the new building featured an international consortium of cultural notables. The theater’s globe-spanning influences were made even more apparent with the installation of an Austrian crystal chandelier and an Italian marble staircase.
