Begin with pickup at your hotel, and travel to the Palace of Fine Arts, a turn-of-the-century landmark in the heart of Mexico City’s historic district and the home of the Mexican Folkloric Ballet. With elegant Art Deco and Art Nouveau design, the Palace of Fine Arts is a destination in itself: don’t miss the Tiffany glass curtain that portrays Mexican volcanoes and fiestas, or the Aztec and Maya gods that guard the entrance to the theater.
The Mexican Folkloric Ballet weaves ancient traditions with Spanish influences, and bring legends, stories, and history to life on stage. Enjoy a show that’s divided into eight segments with an intermission, accompanied by vibrant live music with distinctive sounds from around the country. Performers use traditional costumes in vivid color, with dozens of dancers sharing the stage at once. At the end of the Folkloric Ballet show, meet the driver for the return trip to your hotel.
Note: The show may also take place at the Castillo de Chapultepec.
