in detail

It is the main performing arts venue in the country. Great concerts, theather plays, dance performances and other events with interpreters, speakers and national companies as well as international ones are performed. It can host 10,000 spectators.

Not only musicians, orchestras and ballets but also hundreds of people and promoters have contributed to the success of this place since more than 30 millions of people have assisted the precinct during 22 years of artistic life. 

It is important to mention that it houses a monumental organ (Órgano Monumental del Auditorio Nacional, OMAN) which is made of 15,633 flutes which range in length from 1.5 centimeters to 10 meters. 

The Auditorio Nacional is not only a space for music but also a place of business, conferences and international encounters of translational enterprises and much more. 

Originally conceived as a horse racing venue, facilities were used instead for art shows and the barn became a theater. However, by the end of 80s, the venue had been overcome by its low capacity. So the INBA, Secretaría de Cultura and Departamento del Distrito Federal agreed in its redesign. Teodoro González de León and Abraham Zabludovsky were the architects in charge of the project.

The Auditorio Nacional is managed by the Fideicomiso para el Uso y Aprovechamiento del Auditorio Nacional (FUAAN) which is integrated by three divisions: the federal government, the city government as well as private and social sector.
