The celebrated Ballet Folklorico of Mexico will be returning to Vallarta after a 12 year absence performing 2 performances only, Saturday, January 22, at 7 pm and 9:30 pm, in Vallarta’s beautiful performing arts venue, Teatro Vallarta.

Tickets are $570 Pesos for general seating and $670 Pesos for VIP seating and are available at Vallarta Fitness in Plaza Galerias, at Plaza Caracol and at the theatre’s box office Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm. Teatro Vallarta is located in El Centro at Uruguay 184, just south of LEY’S grocery store on the main street as you enter downtown.

Directly from the famed Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, comes the most acclaimed Mexican Ballet of all time, Ballet Folklorico de Mexico. Directed by Amalia Hernandez and featuring 50 dancers and 16 musicians, Ballet Folklorico de Mexico is a colorful celebration of the Mexican culture not to be missed.

Since its inception in 1952, the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico has performed in more than 80 countries with a repertoire consisting of some 30 ballets made up of nearly 60 Mexican folk dances. The ballet and its founder, Amalia Hernandez, have received more than 200 awards for their work, including a Tony Award, the Prize of Nations in France, the Tiffany Award for Lifetime Achievement in New York and, in Mexico, The National Culture Prize, the nation's top cultural recognition. Now, audience members here in Banderas Bay will have the opportunity to experience this world-wide phenomenon live!

For years, locals have been yearning for a state-of-the-art performance space that could handle world-class touring productions. With the announcement of the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico, expats, local nationals and visitors alike can now enjoy this top production without having to travel to Mexico City. Come support the arts in Banderas Bay and purchase your tickets today to the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico.
