- The Auditorio Nacional, or National Auditorium, is one of Mexico City's most popular indoor concert and entertainment venues. Built in 1952, the auditorium hosted the 1968 Summer Olympics gymnastics competition and was renovated in 1990. The angular stone and glass structure houses the 10,000 seat main auditorium and a smaller event space called Lunario, which features the Cinebar. Concerts dominate the calendar with Latin stars like Alejandro Fernandez, Enrique Iglesias, and Luis Miguel frequent visitors. International music acts have included Deep Purple, Chicago, REO Speedwagon, and Styx, and on a more intimate scale, Nora Jones and Diana Krall. The Auditorio Nacional is the sole Mexico City location of the HD simulcasts from the Metropolitan Opera; the Great Ballets of the World Series broadcasts full-length works from such European companies as the Paris Opera and Bolshoi Ballets. The auditorium is located near Polanco's El Bajio Restaurant and Hard Rock Café.
