If you plan to do a walking tour, or just walk on your own, walk around PDBA. Such a magnificent building. Lots of people around, just hanging out ( I can’t blame them). A nice place to meet up with family or friends. The architecture is outstanding.

I visited Bellas Artes during a private sight-seeing tour so I had an one-on-one explanation of every mural in this building. The works of Diego Rivera and others are amazing to see. This is a must visit for everyone in Mexico City.

Beautiful Production of Carmen by Bizet! The costumes were wonderful. Bellas Artes is a gorgeous theater worth visiting while in the city. The metal curtain panels were constructed in New York by none other than Luis Confort Tiffany in 1910. They weigh 22 tons and depict Mexico City’s famous volcanoes.

After four visits to the DF, I was lucky enough to be in town when an opera was being staged (Ascanio in Alba). The building itself is gorgeous from the outside, and the interior is equally impressive. When I arrived, I was worried because apparently the building contains a number of performance spaces (i.e. it's not just the one "main hall"), and I thought the sound might bleed over. There was no need to worry - we were able to enjoy the performance completely, with no disturbances - even from the Gallery (nosebleed) seats. And with prices starting at around $7.00 (US), can you really go wrong than to have a night at the opera?

They have tons of other arts performances here as well. Definitely worth checking out if you are in town - you can easily get tickets in advance from Ticketmaster and make sure you get the seats you want, and you won't be disappointed.

A magical place, with stories, paintings. Your brand curtain Tiffany, the gold brooch, do not miss the Rivera murals

The exterior of this art museum is magnificent and a must-see in itself. However, as of early October 2021 all of its galleries were closed for viewing except for the murals covering the interior walls of its various floors. This was blamed on COVID , which I still cannot figure out. Nevertheless, the murals in themselves were worth the cost of admission (Mex$75). They were marvelous and included ones by Rivera, Siqueiros, Orozco, Camarena et al. The interior architecture was also very beautiful. Overall, even with the significant closure of the various galleries, I would still recommend a visit.
