About

The Edinburgh Festival Theatre will be a familiar sight to anyone who’s attended the Edinburgh International Festival. Seating 1,915 people, the glass theatre regularly hosts large-scale touring musicians and also acts as the home venue for the Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet. The Festival Theatre sits on Edinburgh’s longest serving theatre site as a theatre has operated in the location since 1830. Designed by legendary architect Frank Matcham, who designed the London Coliseum, the Festival Theatre started life as the Empire Palace Theatre in 1892. The theatre served as a variety, music and opera theatre in the early 20th century, briefly serving as a bingo hall and live music venue. The theatre reopened as the Festival Theatre in 1992. The Festival Theatre boasts the largest stage in Scotland, making it exceptional at hosting dance and ballet, and it is particularly good at acquiring UK premieres of shows including Sting’s new musical The Last Ship and Jaws in Concert. For three weeks in the month of August every year it serves as home to the world-famous Edinburgh International Festival, presenting cutting-edge theatre, opera, dance and classical music.
