Wow. What a high energy and unexpected pleasure. We sat in the central balcony area and had a great view. I would recommend it even to people who don't typically like ballet. Its more like Flamenco mets the new world combined with more energy than I have seen in a long time.

Do not miss it. This will be your most expensive attraction in Mexico City but worth it. No need to buy the most expensive seats. I sat in the medium priced seats in the front row of the balcony and the view was superb. I was able to take great photos as there is no restriction on taking photos or... More

This was probably the highlight of our week in Mexico City !! Outstanding performance. We attended on our fifth day, so we were able to better appreciate all of the presentations.

I last visited Mexico City about 15 years ago and loved it. After so much time, two things were prominent in my memory: Teotihuacan and the Amalia Hernandez ballet troupe. I returned to Mexico City over Holy Week in 2015, this time with a husband and two kids (ages 9 and 11). I'll be honest - I had to force... More

This is not a stodgy dance performance. This show is loud and colorful showcasing music and dance from many different areas and cultures of Mexico. It was amazing! I recommend for adults and kids alike.

Then architecture, both inside and out, and the glorious Tiffany glass curtain are just appetizers for the feast to come when the performance begins. Having taken groups of university students to Mexico for many years, I have attended the Amelia Hernandez company's presentation numerous times and can attest to its exceptionaly in style, design, accuracy and precision of performance.

On our recent visit to Mexico City I was bullied (by my wife) into going to the Sunday morning show on our last day. I really don't like ballet so was dreading it but as she can be very vicious I couldn't get out of it. I have to say that it was really good (but don't tell her I... More

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.
