My wife really enjoyed this, I thought it was Ok. Certain dances were more entertaining than others, but overall had a good time. Not a must see, but a recommendation if you got spare time. Also buy your tickets there. Every seat is a good seat. The mid tier seats might just be the best though. You can see everything... More

It seems that every time I visit the Palacio de Bellas Artes I enjoy it more and more. The Ballet Folklorico is a colorful collaboration of music, dancers and colors.

The name should probably be The National Folkloric Dance Troupe. It features some of the best dances of various different folk and Indigenous groups and is a pleasure to watch and listen to. Should be seen if visiting Mexico DF.

The word ballet is very misleading. Ballet Folklorico is more of a show. It's very interesting and entertaining--the costumes, the music, everything will keep you entranced the entire show. It's certainly not as boring as it might sound to some, and is actually fairly interactive. In a particular number, the dancers come out into the crowd to dance and encourage... More

Came back after more than 15 years and again was amazed by the great show. Colorful and full of joy, the show takes toy everywhere in Mexico and is music and customs. And obviously Bellas Artes is a magnificent setting. Whoever visits or lives in Mexico City must go.

I have seen the show a number of times. It is folk dancing - not a real ballet. But, It is always and outstanding performance. A truly must see--

We loved this event. We booked our tickets from home thru ticket master. We visited the theatre a few days before to see the Diego murals, and tried to get our tickets then, but weren't allowed to. We had to go to ticketmaster directly, and only CERTAIN ticketmasters. We went to the one located in the Liverpool Dept. store in... More

Do NOT miss the Ballet Folklorico. This show is wonderful, colorful, a joy in music and dance. Professionally staged in a theatre that is a work of art in itself.
