The Ballet Folklorico de Mexico de Amalia Hernández at the Auditorium Theatre


The Ballet Folklorico de Mexico de Amalia Hernández

Sunday, September 27, 3:00 p.m. at the Auditium Theatre, 50 E Congress Pkwy

From the heart of Mexico City, Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández has presented dances that are reflective of the culture in Mexico for the past five decades. Founded in 1952 by Amalia Hernández, the ballet has historically celebrated traditional dance and musical pieces from various regions and folk music genres native to Mexico. A Chicago favorite, many of the ensemble's works depict the traditions of indigenous Meso-American culture and delight audiences with their authentic, spirited movement.

A captivating spectacle… a brilliant visual and theatrical sense,” raves the New York Times about Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández. The Chicago Sun-Times says “it is far more than a world-renowned dance company. For the past 60 years it has served as a cultural ambassador of Mexico and become an imaginative repository of the country’s multi-layered history and rich anthropology.” Experience the colorful sights and enchanting sounds of Mexico for one weekend only!
