I have traveled extensively across Mexico. I'm a dancer myself and know the different regional dances. I can say that the show is very professional, dancer execute their moves with all the artistic, athletic and cultural rigueur. And as a world traveller I can also say this show has an international quality level.

Put this on your "Must Do" list for Mexico City. I understand the Ballet Folklorico performs in several venues, but we were fortunate to get tickets to see it in Las Bellas Artes. The theatre is magnificent and so was the performance. We were in the medium-priced seats, which were in the first balcony--great seats.

For approx $50 (US) you cn get a center orchestra seat and see a beautiful 1 1/2 hr spectacle of color, dance and music. Just seeing the inside of the beautiful Bellas Artes building is nearly worth the price of admission, currently performances are Sunday morningsm Sunday evenings and Wednesday afternoons, strongly recommend sun am at 9:30 as seems not...

We thought Ballet Folklorico was not performing while we were in town, It was! If you are a teacher have your ID for a discount. Show was from 9-10:30 non-stop. This is not a Ballet - - it's better. Dances and "costumes" from the different Mexican states are represented - WELL. Lots of fun, color and entertainment,

The Ballet Folklorico and its locale, the Palacio de Bellas Artes, deserve 5 stars without a doubt. The show is fascinating, well orchestrated, and never gets tedious. You leave with great admiration for Mexico's musical diversity. We attended a Saturday morning performance and had seats in the sixth row. The hall was very dark, allowing us to concentrate on the...

This show exceeded all of my expectations and was a delightful find in the city. There were approximately 40 dancers and 10 musicians who were all wonderfully talented, and the costumes were brilliantly colorful. Our seats each cost $300mx and were in the highest balcony, but they still offered a great vantage point. One advantage of being so high up... More

Great cultural show in a beautiful setting. Neat to see different styles from across the country and over time. A must do in DF. The Sunday show is less expensive but no intermission makes it long for kids.

So a sort of Mexican riverdance. Dances all very similar. Musicians very good, but went on for 30 mins too long. Couldn't really recommend, apart from to see the inside of the theatre. Not worth M$700 per ticket and these were not the most expensive On the plus side the seats were very comfortable!

Seeing this show in Bellas Artes was the highlight of my trip in Mexico. Be advised that cheaper tickets will land you very far from the stage. The music was truly unforgettable!

We tought the presentation was going to be at the Palacio Belas Artes, but it was outdoors in front of Castillo Chapultepec. Arriving there in the evening was an amazing experience ! The view was stunning and the presentation outdoors in front of the castle was an unique experience. The presentation was first class, the performance was varied, the costumes... More
