Tickets are one price to sit anywhere on a first... More

This ballet is so interesting, with dances from around Mexico with the traditional outfits. The show is full of color and music, not a dull moment exciting for even the youngest audience. There is mariachis and many different types of music, to a full carnaval on stage.

We saw the Christmas special in the Chapultepec Castle, it was truly a fantastic spectacle. It represents different Mexican music, dress and traditions and the price is very affordable. A must see!
