I had a wonderful time at the ballet folklorico! The show was a beautiful journey through Mexican culture with music, dance and vibrant costumes. It was brilliant! Loved the costumes and colors and the Palacio de Bellas Artes is an absolutely amazing theatre to see the show in. I had high balcony seats and was still able to enjoy the... More

My daughter and I enjoyed the Ballet Folkloria de Mexico. The costumes and sets are of very bright colors. The singing and dancing was of the highest quality. However, my favorite element was the Mariachi Band. This was not your typical restaurant Mariachi Band. This was a 15-20 piece band including two harps. It was worth the price just for... More

Quite costly but I would pay it again at any time! Bellas Artes is an outstanding location, the staging and performance great!

When I lived in Mexico, I had to take many Company visitors to the Ballet Folklorico. Difficult to park in the vicinity, but the parking attendant takes care of you. The Ballet is exciting and emotional, and visitors love it. After my 12th visit I had had enough. but a couple of visits are well worth the time, money and... More

My wife really enjoyed this, I thought it was Ok. Certain dances were more entertaining than others, but overall had a good time. Not a must see, but a recommendation if you got spare time. Also buy your tickets there. Every seat is a good seat. The mid tier seats might just be the best though. You can see everything... More

It seems that every time I visit the Palacio de Bellas Artes I enjoy it more and more. The Ballet Folklorico is a colorful collaboration of music, dancers and colors.

The name should probably be The National Folkloric Dance Troupe. It features some of the best dances of various different folk and Indigenous groups and is a pleasure to watch and listen to. Should be seen if visiting Mexico DF.

The word ballet is very misleading. Ballet Folklorico is more of a show. It's very interesting and entertaining--the costumes, the music, everything will keep you entranced the entire show. It's certainly not as boring as it might sound to some, and is actually fairly interactive. In a particular number, the dancers come out into the crowd to dance and encourage... More
