My wife and I went to the theatre to see the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra on Sunday afternoon and we thoroughly enjoyed not only the fantastic music but also this lovely theatre. We also had great coffee served by a very friendly lady.

At a concert their last night beautiful little place. Stage to small for an Orchestra so sound muffled. The most painful seats I have sat in for two hours. More room on Ryan Air. Good friendly bar staff and pleasant venue apart from the seats

The company playing at this venue were kind enough to allow MS Aberdeen to take a collection for our charity from the exiting audience. The theatre staff were very helpful throughout. We were given free seats for the show, which was a musical, excellently done. I can especially recommend the choreography. And audience were most generous in donating. There is... More

I've visited HMT quite a few times now and each time has been wonderful, be it ballet, opera, or a musical theatre. It never takes long to find your seats, and they're actually quite comfy. The view is unobstructed no matter where you sit. The theatre itself is beautiful, wonderful architecture, and acoustics to match. If you're planning to visit... More

Good acoustics and all seats have a good view of the stage. Good toilet facilities and lift access to parts. Stages some great and top shows and usually always well supported. Has bar facilities and also a restaurant with a reasonable range of food. We go to shows there quite often.

We went to see Jackie the musical and it was fantastic. It had a great cast with quite a few famous faces. It had us up on our feet dancing and singing
