Go see Ballet Folklorico! It was awesomely entertaining!

Being from the southwestern US, I'd seen many ballet folklorico performances before, but this was by far the greatest. Do yourself a favor and get tickets to the show.

This is a highlight of Mexico City! I went to the Sunday morning show -- probably less attended than evening performances. The dancing, costumes, music, everything is outstanding. The Tiffany stain glass curtain is beyond words. The whole theater is stunning. Reasonably priced for the venue and quality. Here is the prince: the box office does not take American credit... More

This event was part of our tour to Mexico City. The site is a beautiful and comfortable site. The seating, lighting was so comfortable. All the seating has great views of the stage. The musicians, dancers are excellent. They tell the story of history of Mexico from beginning to present day. The Marachai band is fun and energetic. If you... More

This performance was outstanding. The costumes were colourful and dramatic. The dancers were professional and truly portrayed the various cultural customs and dances of each region of Mexico throughout time. A beautiful and artistic event that will energize you.

The Ballet Folclórico de México de Amalia Hernández is a cultural MUST on any visit to Mexico City, especially when they are dancing in Palacio de Bellas Artes. This is a world-class company of professional dancers that put their hearts and souls into their performances. The setting is spectacular; an art deco masterpiece complete with Tiffany glass curtain! If you... More

We hopped a bus from the airport downtown for the show. Grabbed some tickets online and picked them up at the will call box office. The ballet was... More

I am no ballet expert but this is not what I equate to traditional ballet. There aren't a lot of people up on their tip toes. That being said, it's a really wonderful performance of different Mexican dances and music. It's sweet and fun and I imagine if you are from Mexico, it is also sentimental. We were part of... More

If you get the chance to see a performance by the Ballet Folklorico - do not miss it! We bought our tickets on Ticketmaster and it was a super simple and easy process. Once we arrived in Mexico, we went to our closest Ghandi library and picked them up at the designated Ticketmaster booth inside - absolutely no problems. The... More

We attended a performance of the Ballet Folklorico during our recent Christmas break visit. We had no problems obtaining tickets by actually going to the Palacio a day before and picking out seats for a group of 8. The tickets ranged from $600 pesos for third floor, to $880 for second floor balcony, to $1000 for ground floor seatings. Honestly,... More

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
