I have seen this performance twice recently. Once on Sunday morning and the other time on Wednesday evening. Each performance had some numbers the same and the others were different but both performances were excellent. They last about two hours. Be sure to get there early to see the Tiffany glass curtain. The second time I got my reservation through... More

We saw the holiday show which was held outdoors at Chapultec Castle in the park. A great collection of music and dance from all over Mexico, complete with horses and animals on stage. Beautifully done and it looked as if the audience was full of locals perhaps attending as a Christmas tradition?

The show lasts 1h30. It has a showcase of different music and dances of Mexico. Great show, costumes and music. I loved it. Went to the 9:30 am show on Sunday. They DO NOT give you tickets there when purchased via ticketmaster online. It is better to buy them there. Buy the cheap ones and if there is space they... More

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
