It's a plum gig--producing the first U.S. tour in a decade of the original Ballet Folklorico de Mexico--as the latter-day Barnum and Bailey who've landed the job know. And have they got a show for you: It opens tonight in the Shrine Auditorium. Legendary impresario Sol Hurok guided Amalia Hernandez and her company here for 20 years. When he died in 1979, Ballet Folklorico stopped touring the United States, although it continued to perform elsewhere around the globe.

The annual tradition of Ballet Folklorico de Mexico lands at the Universal Amphitheatre this weekend for several performances, just in time for Hispanic Heritage Month. The Mexico City-based dance company, led by the esteemed Amalia Hernandez, celebrates its 48th anniversary this year.

It is "Dances With Wolves" told without a trace of sentimentality or contrivance--and with a wondrous mysticism. If Echeverria is a more ambitious and uncompromising filmmaker than Kevin Costner, he is also more demanding.

His eyes riveted on the young people tuning up in the historic courtyard below, Esa-Pekka Salonen was like a statue out of time--black Levi's, Reeboks and golf shirt, his conductor's baton wedged under arm. He leaned, transfixed, through the arch of Tepoztlan's 16th-Century Convent of the Nativity and surveyed the scene before him. "It's amazing!"
