“a must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

The Teatro Angela Peraulta is a fully restored fabulous old theater. It seats approximately 800 and has great accoustics. You can see Symphony, Ballet, Opera, Modern Dance, Great singers, and almost everything else here, at incredibly reasonably prices. If you get a chance to see a performance here, take it. If that doesn't work, at least take a tour. It really is impressive, especially when you see the photos on the 2nd floor of the theater before it was resatored.

“Excellent Accident”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We had gone to purchase tickets for traditional Mexican Dance Show. The guy even asked us if we wanted 6 or 8 o'clock and we told him 8 p.m. He said that the doors opened at 7:30. A few days later my husband looked at the tickets and it said 7 o'clock. We also noticed that it was a show of a variety of local dance schools. A bellman from our resort called and they said we could not exchange the tickets. We were somewhat disappointed, but decided that it would be a good show since we know that the lovely people of Mexico give it their all, especially when they preform. And yes the show was amazing. Many dance schools from Mazatlan preformed, from five and six year olds to adults. In the end we decided that maybe the ticket mixup was for the best. We were the only gringos in the packed theater. The theater itself is beautiful. Next year we want to go to show and get seats in the first balcony near the stage.

“Ballet at Angela Peralta”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Have just returned from seeing the ballet Don Quixote at Angela Peralta. The theatre is stunningly beautiful.

We have seen opera, folkloric dance,modern dance and ballet here. Tickets can range from expensive to free depending on whats on offer.

What has prompted this review is an observation regarding the cultural difference relating to behaviour at such events.
Last night at the ballet we sat in front of 2 ladies who proceeded to talk from the moment the curtain went up. I found this distracting and, as we had purchased the most expensive tickets, infuriating.

At the end of the first act I insisted we move. There were plenty of vacant seats.

To my horror the couple behind us also talked throughout most of the second half, the mans voice was considerably louder than his female counterparts.

In England this would not be acceptable. Shushes would resonate from all around.

The ballet itself was well executed and apart from the distractions was enjoyable. A young local company with lots of energy and talent.

“Very classy theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a wonderful renovated old "grande dame".
Many different forms of entertainment here, from ballet, opera, symphony, modern dance, choirs. Even if you don't attend a performance, please take a tour. It's lovely and the acoustics are great. Oh, by the way, most expensive tickets area out $40.00 Cad.
