Interior of the main concert hall of the Auditorio Nacional de Música

The Auditorio Nacional de Música (National Auditorium of Music) is a complex of concert venues located in Madrid, Spain and the main concert hall in the Madrid metropolitan area.[1] It comprises two main concert rooms: a symphonic hall and a chamber music hall.[2]


Resident artists

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.[3]

The Auditorio Nacional is the main venue for guest orchestras performing in Madrid.


The Auditorio’s main concert hall is the Sala Sinfónica (Symphonic Hall) 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.[4][5]

The smaller hall is the Sala de Cámara (chamber music hall). This hall has 692 seats.[6]


The Auditorio Nacional was inaugurated in 1988, and built as part of the Programa Nacional de Auditorios (National Auditoriums Program). 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.
