  3. Palacio de Bellas Artes


El Palacio de Bellas Artes, apart from being a beautiful stage for international opera, also reserves space for a theater. Classical plays from world literature are adapted for the Mexican audience. Great actors and directors have worked here. The theater is run by the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes and is a venue for major cultural events. The stunning architecture of Federico Mariscal only adds to the dramatic impact of each show seen here. Illustrious establishments like the Orquesta Sinfonica National, Compania Nacional de Danza, Compania Nacional de Opera and Orquesta de Camara de Bellas Artes are regulars here. From an architectural standpoint, the Palacio's resplendent dome has to be its zenith, which soars over Centro Historico's scenic environs under the bright Mexican skies.
