This was one of the better performances I've ever had the privilege of seeing. I was worried it was going to be some Mexican kitsch show but it was incredible. It's not often that I'm sad a performance is over. A definite must see for visitors.

This was a wonderful presentation with a cultural voyage through dance through many states of Mexico. The costumes are incredibly colorful and the dancers seem to really enjoy it rather than just go through the motions. This is a must-see in Mexico City. Recommend you arrive at least ! hr before the show if you are buying your tickets at... More

We bought seats in the galeria -- the cheapest section -- for a Sunday matinee. I was worried that we would have a compromised view of the show, but after being inside the beautiful theater, I am sure there's not a bad seat in the house. We actually preferred the high vantage point: it gave us an excellent view of... More

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

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.
