The theater was nice and i am telling this because i expected to see more indigenes dance in the almost two hour program. But i must admit that the spectacle was very good directed and all the audience enjoyed it

We had the nosebleed seats but enjoyed the performance a lot. Who knew Mexico had this many variety of folk dances ? It gave us an introduction to the various regions and cultures of Mexico. The auditorium in Palacio de Bellas Artes is unique as well.

The young women are beautiful and the young men handsome! The costumes are colorful and enhance the dance and the dancing makes you want to sign up for lessons.

Belles Artes is a beautiful building not to be missed. The Ballet Folklorico de Mexico was just okay. Best part was the "rope guy" and the mariachis.

Bottled, colored and politically corrected, the "ballet" still manages to capture the quasi-military energy of México's heart and heel-shattering dances, with a good slice of culture and history on the side, that at times feels almost like an historical re-enactment. All in all, a dazzling stream of swirls and bangs that you won't likely ever forget. Bottoms up! (However, it... More

I just saw the Ballet Folklorico last night and enjoyed the fun trip through the different cultures and styles in Mexico's past. One thing that I would advise anyone interested in seeing this show to avoid is the Galeria section (the $300 seats), the section is so far up that you cannot see the backdrops or even some of the...

This was a great addition to our trip to Mexico City. The performance in such a beautiful setting as the Belle Artes building is truly amazing. I should say that for us it was a perfect counterpoint to our adventure the night before .... Mexican wrestling (Luche Libre) at the Mexico City Arena. Great fun all the way around!

Whole show was thrilling. true showcase of the mexican culture. Don't miss this. Highlight was Tiffany's glass curtain and the ceiling. I can't explain the beauty of this. You need to go and experience this.

Seen the show a few times over the years. Audience participation unfortunately consists of people taking digital pictures with flash, which to my mind undermines the artistic value of the superb performance. Before curtain-up, or in the interval, go and admire the spectacular murals in the upper lobby (Rivera, Tamayo etc.
