I have seen the show a number of times. It is folk dancing - not a real ballet. But, It is always and outstanding performance. A truly must see--

We loved this event. We booked our tickets from home thru ticket master. We visited the theatre a few days before to see the Diego murals, and tried to get our tickets then, but weren't allowed to. We had to go to ticketmaster directly, and only CERTAIN ticketmasters. We went to the one located in the Liverpool Dept. store in... More

Do NOT miss the Ballet Folklorico. This show is wonderful, colorful, a joy in music and dance. Professionally staged in a theatre that is a work of art in itself.

Not only was the Ballet Folklorico fantastic, but the building; the Palacio de Bellas Artes, was a Deco masterpiece. The stained glass dome is worth the price of admission (which wasn't much, sitting in the stratosphere). Everything about the dance was great-best musicians, color, lighting, choreography, and of course the dancers.

It was hard to find the schedule, but there is a poster at Bellas Artes showing times. When I was there, it happened a few days during the week...definitely on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings. The seats were 300, 700, and 800 pesos. Expensive if you are on a budget! I bought the 300 peso tickets and sat waaayyyy up... More

Great show that lasted about 1.5 hours for us. I think our show may have been shorter because they had another show to set up for. There was no intermission when we went. We attended the 9:30 am show on a Sunday. Bought 300 peso tickets at the box office. They don't speak English here so you will have to... More

We purchased the tickets at the ticket office after the main entrance. Better to go there knowing what seats you want after studying the web site for classes/prices. The theater house is very nice. Make sure to see the marble toilets! The performance is very lively and colorful. Definitely worth seeing this show.
