“Wonderful concert in an exquisite setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The Degollado Theater has undergone various bouts of remodeling over the 40 years I've known it, and each time it emmerges even more lovely. It is the perfect place to enjoy ballet folklorico, but most especially the Orquesta Filharmonica de Jalisco. The orchestra's dynamic young conductor, Alondra de la Parra, seems to pulls the music from the instruments with the tips of her fingers. I enjoy sitting in the little cafe, attached to the theatre, with a glass of white wine and a light snack before the concert, watching the evening scene and anticipating the evening before me. Then I attend the pre-concert lecture presented by Felipe, one of the cellists. Thanks to him I have learned to listen and appreciate music in a fresh new way. I look forward to many more concerts in this jewel of a theatre.

“Degollado, a Bit of Culture in the Middle of Guadalajara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Degollado is the name of the municipality where the theater is. It is also a last name. It means "beheaded." Teatro Degollado is a neoclassical Mexican theater known for its diverse performances and artistic design. It is located on a downtown plaza of Guadalajara, Jalisco. It has been recently refurbished and is very well known and the pride of the people of Guadalajara. It was smaller than we expected but some how reminiscent of La Scala de Milan. A must visit for sure.

“an awesome theatre with great performers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I went to the Chopin series last year and it was the best concert experience I had ever had. The pianist was awesome and even played my favourite polonaise as the end. The theatre is very cozy and there is a theatre bar for drinks before and after and during the intermission. It is a great place, and in a great location in the center of Guadalajara. I came back this year to go to the new season of classics but ALL the tickets were sold out for the whole month. Book early!

“great but closed!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Nothing wrong with the theater but... went there 3 days in a row (noon to 2 PM) and couldn't acces because of rehearsals. I guess Christmass time isn't the best for that. Anyway, it's in the area you should and will visit.
