Theatre Royal Glasgow
Theatres in Glasgow don’t come any older than this. Opened in 1867 as the Royal Colosseum & Opera House, it became the less fussy-sounding Theatre Royal in 1869, and has been in constant use ever since. It’s home to both Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet, and as well as all the major productions by these two resident companies – which have in recent years included Scottish Opera’s take on Puccini’s ‘Madama Butterfly’ and Scottish Ballet’s hugely successful version of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ – the Royal Theatre also hosts a broad variety of populist entertainment spanning the worlds of theatre, dance, comedy, musicals, kids shows, close-up celebrity encounters and live music.
