About Theatre Royal Glasgow

The Theatre Royal Glasgow's first theatre opened in 1867 and after two fires reopened in September 1895. This began the long and successful association of the Theatre Royal with the best in the world of entertainment.

The Theatre Royal Glasgow presents a wide variety of drama, dance, comedy, opera, musical and children’s theatre. It is home to Scotland’s resident companies, Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet, and is a unique City Centre venue for conferences, meetings and seminars.

The Victorian auditorium and stylish contemporary corporate areas provide privacy and flexibility for many occasions. On March 2005 Ambassador Theatre Group took over the management of the Theatre Royal Glasgow, and continues to present first class entertainment.
