This was the #1 activity on my list, when we decided to explore Mexico City. The theatre is so impressive, as mentioned in other reviews; but the true beauty of the evening was provided by the dedicated musicians and dance artists!

Just before the performance begins there is the light show of the Tiffany Glass curtain that features the two volcanoes visible from Mexico City on a clear day - Popocatepetl and Ixtlaccihuatl. Be sure to be in your seat at least ten minutes before show time. Different regions of Mexico are represented in the dances performed. The music, costumes and... More

Went with my Mexican girlfriend last night and had a wonderful evening. This talented expansive troupe display the many traditional dances and music covered across all of the states of Mexico. My girlfriend explained each one to me as it unfolded but i would have been entertained without this additional knowledge. We were right in the gods and still had... More

If you like dance, this is a very complete show with many types of traditional dances from all around the country. Amalia Hernandez, the choreographer, started years ago and perfected every single dance style in Mexico.

Great show to see the amazing and vast mexican traditions and culture. The standards of this folk dance show are as high as the best in the world. Besides the Bellas Artes building is a must to visit inthe heart of MX.

Loved the costumes and colors and the Palacio de Bellas Artes is an absolutely amazing theatre to see the show in. I had high balcony seats and was still able to enjoy the... More

My daughter and I enjoyed the Ballet Folkloria de Mexico. The costumes and sets are of very bright colors. The singing and dancing was of the highest quality. However, my favorite element was the Mariachi Band. This was not your typical restaurant Mariachi Band. This was a 15-20 piece band including two harps. It was worth the price just for... More

When I lived in Mexico, I had to take many Company visitors to the Ballet Folklorico. Difficult to park in the vicinity, but the parking attendant takes care of you. The Ballet is exciting and emotional, and visitors love it. After my 12th visit I had had enough. but a couple of visits are well worth the time, money and... More
