Glasgow is home to most of Scotland’s National Companies, including Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet, the National Theatre of Scotland and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. With such a cultural heritage, you’d expect a number of fine Glasgow Theatres and venues, and you’d be right.
The Citizen’s Theatre is the principal producing theatre in the west of Scotland, with a host of notable alumni both on-stage and behind-the-scenes. Glasgow also hosts the busiest performing arts venue in Scotland, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and one of the oldest - the Pavilion Theatre, which opened in 1904.
The oldest is the Theatre Royal, which opened in 1867 and is the longest-running theatre in Scotland.
But new and contemporary spaces are also flourishing, such as Tramway, the Torn theatre, and the Mitchell Theatre, which is attached to the Glasgow library of the same name.
