The name change is in honour of King Charles III's upcoming coronation, and it marks a significant milestone for this historic venue, which has entertained audiences for centuries.

Originally established as the Queen's Theatre in 1705, it is London's second oldest theatre site. The theatre has a rich legacy of hosting premieres by famous composers such as Handel, Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Gounod, Bizet, and even the first complete performance of Wagner's Ring Cycle.

The current theatre building, the fourth on the site, was constructed in 1897 and has since been the home of the world-famous musical, Phantom of the Opera, since 1986. In honour of Prince Charles becoming the British monarch, the theatre was renamed His Majesty's Theatre.

Despite its many incarnations, His Majesty's Theatre has always maintained its status as a leading venue for theatre-goers. Its grand architecture and exquisite interior provide a truly majestic experience to audiences. From its humble beginnings to its current reign, His Majesty's Theatre remains a beloved and celebrated landmark in London's theatre scene.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera has been running at the theatre for over three decades, and it remains one of the most popular shows in London's West End. With its rich history, stunning architecture, and world-class productions, His Majesty's Theatre is a jewel in London's cultural crown.
