Venue info

Standing on Edinburgh's longest continuous theatre site, the Festival Theatre was designed as Scotland's premier dance and opera house in 1994 and now offers a variety of world-class productions across all artforms.

The stage is the largest in Scotland and third largest in Britain, providing the perfect platform for a programme of world-class contemporary dance and ballet, and excellent acoustics make it a number one venue for opera, musicals and concerts. With modern glass-fronted foyer and bar spaces and a plush 1915-seat auditorium, this is a must-visit venue for sparkling entertainment that won't let you down. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
