I live already fifteen years in Guadalajara.I have been many times to this theater. It is highly recommended to plan a visit to whatever show. People coming near the end of August and the first week and a half in September should make a serious effort to attend one of the galas de Mariachi in this theater, It is sure worth any penny you spend. The tickets are pretty hefty for Mexican standards and are from a few hundred pesos to almost 2000 pesos per seat. With a dollar now, 3rd quarter of 2012, running around 13 pesos.
There are in this period mariachis from all over the world, visiting and performing in various places through the city. There are even free concerts for the locals. The event is organized by the National Chamber of Commerce of Guadalajara, in Spanish CANACO.
But I highly recommend planing your vacation around this time. The climate is nice and galas are majestic, with the worlds best mariachis and the philharmonic Orchestra of the State.

Didn't get the opportunity to view any events inside of the theatre, but only a look-see. It is one of the several historic structures the city of Guadalajara has to offer. It sits in the courtyard where symphonies take place outside in the center (as was the case the day I visited it). An easy Must See when visiting Guadalajara's historic central city area. Easy walking to many other attractions in the central city area.

We tried to get tickets for a clasical music performance but we couldn't. There's also a cafe outside the theater.

Make sure to find out when the Ballet Folklorico is being performed. I was able to get a ticket to the last performance of the season and it was AMAZING. The theater itself is open to the public for viewing and photos during the week, limited hours.

This theater is right on the main square in Guadalajara. They have a wide variety of shows... We saw the Jalisco symphony which was excellent. They also frequently host Ballet Folklorico performanes from the University of Guadalajara which are quite good (typically on Sunday mornings).
