Wonderful, wonderful show! A true highlight of any trip to Mexico City. The dances and costumes were spectacular. As another reviewer stated, there's no need to splurge on the expensive seats. The mid range seats on the balcony were perfect and offered a view of the show. I would even say, they were better than the seats on the ground... More

The Ballet Folklórico de México is a Mexican folkloric ballet ensemble run by the national ballet in Mexico City. For six decades it has presented dances in costumes that reflect the traditional culture of the various states and time periods in its history. I have seen this ballet twice now: once at the Teatro Degallado in Guadalajara, and again at... More

The Ballet Folklorico wasn't high on our list of things to do in Mexico City, but after 2 friends recommended it, we decided to go. My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed it. The show lasted about 2 hours. (There is no intermission.) We bought tickets directly at the box office, located in the Bellas Artes building (at a fraction... More

Nothing more exciting and wonderful that Ballet Folkloric de Mexico! While you can see monuments and explore the city and food, you have to see this beautiful colorful, spirited performance and feel the beauty of Mexican culture

My family and I planned a trip to Mexico city and this was on our must do list. First, the building is awesome. It is one of the most beautiful buildings I have even been it. The dancers were very skilled. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the DF.

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
