The Festival Theatre stands on the site of the old Empire Theatre and opened in 1994, boasting the largest stage of any presenting house in Britain at the time. Today, at just over 2,500 square feet it is the largest performance area in Scotland, second only to the Royal Opera House in the UK, and is established as one of the country’s most prestigious venues.
Not only is it the Capital’s home for Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, and at the heart of the Edinburgh International Festival, it has also gained an international reputation as one of the leading dance houses in the world. The 1915-seat venue hosts a cutting-edge contemporary dance season alongside large-scale musicals, international ballet productions and a variety of one-night musical events.
