Several of the animals leave the stage and run into the aisles between audience seats.

As part of the show, the wolves also act out fight scenes with the performers. 

The clip shows one of the actors being pinned to the ground by a wolf. 

The video was shared on China’s social media platform, Weibo, quickly clocking up more than 433 million views.

‘I would lose my mind if just sitting there,’ one person commented.

According to the Huaxia Cultural Tourism, the wolves feature in one scene which recounts the history of the Silk Road, an ancient trade network, with the wolves representing the dangerous journey China’s ancient camel troops would take to Central Asia.  

The company who owns the theatre dismissed safety concerns, insisting that the wolves ‘won’t hurt people’. 

‘The wolves have been domesticated for three to four generations,’ a representative of the Xi’an branch of Huaxia Cultural Tourism said, as quoted by CNN. 

‘They are legally raised and trained by professional trainers with certifications since 2018 and no accident happened in the past three years.’ 

 The representative added that the theatre had taken safety precautions including erecting protection nets between the stage and seats so wolves could not reach audience members. 

The actors also wore protective clothing so they would not be injured during fight scenes, the representative said.
