My coworker was hesitant to go, because he thought it would be a traditional ballet. It's more of a folk show where they have different costumes, dancing, and a live band/orchestra.
Shows are every Friday at 8:30 pm, Sunday 9:30 am, and Sunday 8:30 pm. We went to the Sunday morning show, came 15 minutes early and bought the tickets at the ticket booth. You can buy them at Ticketmaster Online http://www.ticketmaster.com.mx but I couldn't figure out the whole "will call" thing. My seats were still pretty good and I noticed there were many available seats. There isn't a dress code (for the morning show anyway), I wore jeans, a nice shirt, and sandals.
Diego Rivera is the more famous, but another excellent and fascinating muralist is David Alfaro Siquieros, who tried to kill Tolstoi when he was in Mexico with Diego Rivera. His works can also be found in the Palacio de las Bellas Artes, together with paintings of Rivera and José Clemente Orozco. They're breathtaking!
during its construction (1904-1934!),they realized the building was sinking in the very light and unstable ground(as if it was butter!)
today,it goes on sinking:its unique quality!
since its achievement,has lost 4 meters...
so,the same stairs which went up before,today are going down....
You really can't miss it. It stands at the beginning of the Alameda. The concert hall has Diego Rivera's murals inside.
The Palacio de Bellas Artes seen from the Torre Latinoamericana. What a beautiful building this is, as from above you can see the magnificent roof construction..
If you can, try and catch the Ballet Folklorico of Mexico. Ancient traditions and history of Mexico are brought to life through dance! A must see!
Below is a photo of the 'Ballet Folklorico de Mexico' My father and I were taken here by my cousin Sandy and her boyfriend Ariel. This is the link to the ballet.
