Reviewed yesterday NEW

When I was planning my Mexican grill it was on the top of my list. I went there yesterday to buy my ticket for the morning show. This morning I woke up early, went there and I learnt that it was cancelled. I got my money back, but I was very disappointed.

I was glad to have experienced this performance once but I wouldn't rush to see it again. It's colourful with rousing music but also a bit cliched. It's not what we normally think of as ballet, but more folk dancing.

This is an amazing show- live music with mariachi bands and traditional dance with dress from various regions. It is lively, fast paced and even has some comical moments. It could be a great show for the entire family! A few details that are important that I had to search for... 1. Buy tickets from Ticketmaster before the show to... More

Don't get me wrong. The Palacio des Belles Artes is an AMAZING venue and the show itself is a high energy fast-paced race through Mexican culture and history via music and dance. Mariachis in particular are spectacular and the dancing gets a little repetitive but is generally as good as these things get. Why the '1*' review? Whoever manages this... More

We arrived just as the show was starting and we were promptly shown to our seats. The show was absolutely excellent and in my opinion is a must see. Look at the details of the costumes and you can see all of the regions of Mexico represented as well as a number of historical points.

I was a bit unsure if I wanted to watch a ballet performance. This, however was entertaining and amazing. Creative repertoire of the local dances presented for an hour and half without intermissions. The dance troupe has about 40 members and there are about 10 musicians. No part of this was boring or insipid.

We avoided the high-priced tour companies and ticketmaster fees and still enjoyed this show. We took uber to the Palacio Bellas Artes on a Wednesday and paid about $16/ticket at the box ofice for balcony seats. The performance began at 8:30 and we arrived at 8:00pm. There were seats available on all levels although fewer seats available in the balcony.... More

If you're visiting Mexico City and can include this experience in your schedule, your attendance will be well-repaid with memories you'll treasure for a lifetime. Firstly, be advised that the performance is only given two nights a week, I believe (I don't have the pamphlet in front of me now so do check their schedule of performances carefully) and tickets...

This was one of the greatest highlights of our trip. Phenomenal presentations, breath taking, awe inspiring, entertaining - I could go on and on. I think its a must see if you're into learning about Mexico history and culture.

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.
