The Theatre Royal was founded in 1867 – Scotland’s oldest – and has been a cornerstone of Glasgow’s performing arts ever since. In 1975, it was purchased by the Scottish Opera. It is also the home of the Scottish Ballet. It is a popular venue for opera, ballet, concerts and plays. This foyer was added to the historic building in 2014. The theatre is located in Cowcaddens, the arts and entertainment district of Glasgow.
