The Ángela Peralta Theater is one of the most important stages, and certainly, open-air stages in the north of Mexico City. The theater opened in 1938 and is today known, especially, as one of the most significant jazz venues in the City.
With an eye toward the 1922 Hollywood Bowl, the theater was designed by architect, Enrique Aragón Echegaray. He got some engineering support from Francisco Lasso. Originally decorated with some Neocolonial ornamentation, this was removed in 1968, some years after the original seating plan was reduced to the 2,500 seats we see today.
Today’s Ángela Peralta Theater is the regular site of concerts and dance events. Jazz may be among the most important offerings, Broadway-style concerts, folkloric ballet, and pop music events are never far down the list of upcoming events.
The theater takes up most of the east side of the Parque Lincoln. It’s not just a concert hall, but a vital part of the community and the arts scene.
