This grand theatre is the heart of north-east Scotland's performing arts scene as it welcomes national and international touring companies. His Majesty's Theatre presents award-winning Broadway and West End musicals, stunning family shows, and stage plays straight from the West End. It is also the home of Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera in the north-east.
His Majesty's Theatre can fit up to 1,491 people sat across its four levels. No matter whether you want to catch a show front and centre from the stalls, or from the back of the balcony, you're guaranteed a perfect view. You're sure to appreciate the talent on show too. Over the years the theatre has hosted performances from famous names like Charlton Heston, Sir Ian McKellen and Vivien Leigh.
His Majesty's Theatre doesn't just take its name from a king. Its facilities are also fit for one. The 1906 restaurant offers guests a fantastic pre-show dinner. Meanwhile, those looking for a simple snack can find it at the theatre's café bar.
