Her Majesty's Theatre

  • About
    The current theatre is actually the 4th theatre to occupy this site: The first, called The Queen's Theatre, was built by Sir John Vanbrugh and opened on 9 April 1705 - when theatre changed it's name to The Kings Theatre in 1714 when King George I ascended the throne.

    This theatre was associated with opera from the early 1910's until 1789 when the theatre was destroyed by fire.

    The current, and fourth, theatre on this site was designed by C J Phipps and opened 28 April 1897. Now mostly plays were presented here, with just the occasional opera. Then in 1916 Chu Chin Chow started a record breaking run of 2,238 performances.

    In 1929 Noel Coward's Bitter Sweet was produced here and enjoyed a run of 697 performances. After the Second World War the theatre mostly presented musicals which included Brigadoon in 1949, Paint Your Wagon in 1953, West Side Story in 1958 and Fiddler On The Roof in 1967 which had a run of 2,030 performances.

    The current production, the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Charles Hart musical Phantom of the Opera opened here on 9 October 1986. Renovations took place of the dome and exterior in 1992, and of the interior in 1994.
