Bellas Artes Tips (33)

Ballet Folklorico - Great show, not typical ballet

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 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.

Mexican Muralists

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!

palacio de bellas artes,mind stairs direction....

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....

One of the symbols of the city.

You really can't miss it. It stands at the beginning of the Alameda. The concert hall has Diego Rivera's murals inside.
