“Must see!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We purchased the tickets at the ticket office after the main entrance. Better to go there knowing what seats you want after studying the web site for classes/prices. The theater house is very nice. Make sure to see the marble toilets!

The performance is very lively and colorful. Definitely worth seeing this show.

“Great evening”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

You got choice between 3 prices when you buy your ticket at the location. 300 / 700 / 800. I bought a 300 MXN ticket and was very happy with it. I think it's better anyways to be higher up, so you see the layout of the dances. The sound is the same everywhere.
Most of the dances / songs are traditional to the Spanish culture with European instruments used.
The show lasts for 2 hours with a 10 minutes intermission.
The room is beautifully made with the famous 22 tons gate made of a million of crystals

“A wonderful night out.”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

It is expensive by Mexican standards but well worth the price. There were over 50 performers and literally dozens of costume changes. The musicians were brilliant and the dancers even better.

We saw the performance at the very beautiful Bellas Artes Opera House and it was fantastic. There are performances at other locations but they could not possibly match the atmosphere.
