Teatro Diana, formerly known as the Cine Diana, was designed by architect Julio de la Peña. In addition to the theater, the project includes a business center (Condominiums Guadalajara) and a hotel (Hilton). His work is an example of the avant-garde architecture in what was formerly known as downtown Guadalajara’s urban center.

In 1995 the theater closed its doors to the public for several years, and in June of 2001 it was acquired by the University of Guadalajara with the idea of reviving this nostalgic landmark and providing a space to meet the region’s needs for cultural promotion.

Teatro Diana reopened its doors to the public on February 4, 2005 and since then has served as a space dedicated to promoting shows that contribute to enhancing Guadalajara’s reputation as a cultural city.
Teatro Diana provides the city with a venue capable of hosting large, world-class productions and performances that have included Forever Tango, Miranda, Jarocho, Gustavo Cerati, Franz Ferdinand, Morrisey, the Vienna Boys’ Choir, the East Village Opera, The East Village Opera, , the London Royal Ballet, Caetano Veloso and Lila Downs, Goran Bregovic, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Slava’s Snow Show, and the Gärtnerplatz Theater Orchestra, among many others.

The Diana Cultural Center is invested in developing our students’ talent. The stages dedicated to this include the Estudio Diana, which is continually hosting the projects by university and local theater companies with the goal of contributing to the growth of stage and musical arts.

The constant struggle to reach new audiences, introduce the public to new cultural and entertainment offerings and remain on the cutting edge in terms of equipment are goals that motivate us each day. From 2007 to 2013 a total of 1,442,015 people attended events held at the Diana Cultural Center.
Today, ten years after Diana’s reopening, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the importance of this venue in the cultural life of our city. Although the Teatro Diana is no longer part of Cultura UDG, it has been passed to all citizens, who make its success possible each day.

Russian singer Anna Netrebko, considered to be the best soprano in the world, was present for the celebration of this important event. She delighted the full house with her voice, accompanied by the Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra.

The event was presided over by Myriam Vachez, head of Jalisco’s Secretariat of Culture; Raúl Padilla, President of the Consultative Board for the Diana Cultural Center; Igor Lozada, Secretary of Outreach and Cultural Promotion; and Santiago Valencia, Coordinator of the Diana Cultural Center.

The soprano accompanied Yusif Eyvazov, a tenor from Azerbaijan, along with a world-class musical show, filling the entire auditorium with the power of his voice. It is these types of shows that have brought fame to Teatro Diana and that will allow it to continue to be known as one of most emblematic venues in the city.
