The Auditorio Nacional de Música is a complex of concert venues located in Madrid, Spain and the main concert hall in the Madrid metropolitan area. It comprises two main concert rooms: a symphonic hall and a chamber music hall.
The resident orchestra at Auditorio Nacional is the Orquesta Nacional de España, although it is also the main venue for the symphonic concerts of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid and the Community of Madrid Orchestra. The Auditorio Nacional is the main venue for guest orchestras performing in Madrid.
The Auditorio’s main concert hall is the Sala Sinfónica which seats 2324. The seats in the Main Hall are situated around the concert stage, following the tradition of the modern European concert halls, in the "vineyard configuration”. The hall also houses a large pipe organ.
The smaller hall is the Sala de Cámara . This hall has 692 seats.
The Auditorio also has a small Sala General del Coro, with 208 seats, and several rehearsal and practice rooms.
Before the construction of the Auditorio, Madrid did not have a proper and modern concert hall, and symphonic concerts usually happened at the Teatro Real and other theatres in Madrid.
The building was designed by the architect José María García de Paredes, and built as part of the Programa Nacional de Auditorios (National Auditoriums Program).
The Auditorio Nacional was inaugurated on October 21, 1988.

  • The start-up concert of the new FSO tour is spectacular. Something not to be missed. Amazing musicians and director. The concert is in crescendo until its completion. With some surprise to the viewer. Madrid National Music Auditorium full. Grateful spectators, standing giving a big ovation for the quality of the Concert. A gift for the ears and the eyes. Great show.

  • We went with quite an expectation for being the public auditorium of the capital. The truth is that our illusions were collapsed by the great disorganization and lack of tact with customers. The show started 20 minutes late, I just went to check the reason and was treated with great rudeness. The concert was fine, but you get sick if you treat it like that just by asking. .

  • We heard the Youth Orchestra of Spain tonight with excellent violin, viola and voice stars. Several encores. We only paid 7 Euros per ticket. The audience loved the performance and applauded vigourously.
  • This is my favorite place in Madrid. A beautiful space designed for great acoustics. If you are buying last minute tickets, get there about half an hour ahead of the show you are attending, or you may not get a seat. People under 30 can get huge discounts on tickets. Concerts played by the national orchestra and choir are 1€ for this group!
