His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeenmarker is the largest theatre in north-east Scotlandmarker, seating over 1400. The theatre is sited on Rosemount Viaduct, opposite the city's Union Terrace Gardensmarker. It was designed by Frank Matcham and opened in 1906. On its centenary in 2006, the theatre was "twinned" with His Majesty's Theatre in Perth, Western Australiamarker.

After a National Lottery grant was awarded in 1999, the Theatre was the subject of an refurbishment and extension. The new glass-fronted box office, café and restaurant was designed by City Architect Trevor Smith, who also designed the award-winning Aberdeen Maritime Museummarker. The auditorium was completely refurbished and new seats were installed. Backstage facilities were also upgraded.

The theatre is regularly visited by Scotland's national arts companies and hosts performances from other major companies and the annual Aberdeen International Youth Festival.

The theatre is managed by Aberdeen Performing Arts which also runs The Music Hallmarker and Aberdeen Box Office.
