Beautiful!
AMAZING dance company.
The gold-shining theater accompanied by the big dark night sky definetley compliments all the colorful dancers on stage.

I sat in Lunada 2...
GREAT spot for pictures,but i feel like your own balcony would be much better,you just have to find
the perfect spot.(you don't want heads interfering with your view)

This show is a MUST...
There will be absolutley NO regrets...
Enjoy!

“not what you expect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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--

“What a night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

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 Centro. Anyways....the show is wonderful. The theatre is amazing, the dance company is huge, we had no idea. The costumes beautiful. The dancing was wonderful. A great night. Some dances represented different parts of the whole country. We sat on the main floor and really enjoyed it. Don't miss this, if you are lucky enough to be in MX City when they have a show.

“The Heart and Soul of Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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.

“Top flight dance, costumes, choreography, music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Not only was the Ballet Folklorico fantastic, but the building; the Palacio de Bellas Artes, was a Deco masterpiece. The stained glass dome is worth the price of admission (which wasn't much, sitting in the stratosphere). Everything about the dance was great-best musicians, color, lighting, choreography, and of course the dancers.
