Like most major cities, Edinburgh has a thriving drama scene.|
The most popular time to visit the city for shows is during the annual International Festival, however there is always plenty on offer at other times of year too.
|The Edinburgh Festival Theatre, located on Nicholson Street, around the corner from the Royal Museum of Scotland, is Edinburgh's main theatre venue.|
There has been a theatre on this site for several hundred years. However, it has been re-built several times in its history, notably at the start of the 20th century when a fire led to the death on stage of the famous American illusionist the Great Lafayette.
The present glass fronted building dates from 1994 and it is huge - it can seat over 2,000 people and has the biggest stage area in Britain.
The interior has been restored to its sumptuous original state and is well worth seeing. The theatre is used for a wide variety of performances, but most notably it is regarded by many as the opera venue that Edinburgh lacked for so many years.
