His Majesty's Theatre (HMT) was designed by the eminent theatre architect Frank Matcham and opened in 1906. HMT attracts a wide and diverse range of top quality theatre productions from musicals to top class drama and dance.
The theatre seats around 1470 people and was reopened in September 2005 following a major £8million re-development . The redevelopment successfully added a modern aspect to a n historic Edwardian building and the new facilities have brought the theatre to life both day and night offering 21st century theatre goers a truly memorable experience.
HMT is operated by Aberdeen Performing Arts, a charitable organisation which also operates and manages the Music Hall, The Lemon Tree and Aberdeen Box Office.
