Her Majesty’s Theatre, the West End home of The Phantom of the Opera, will be renamed to mark King Charles III as the sitting monarch.

Her Majesty’s Theatre will be renamed His Majesty’s Theatre on 6 May 2023, the same day as King Charles III’s coronation.

The decision to change the theatre’s name is in line with a historic precedent dating back to the 1700s. The last name change took place in 1952, from His Majesty's Theatre to Her Majesty's Theatre for Queen Elizabeth II.

The Phantom of the Opera will continue at His Majesty’s Theatre, with performances currently through 2 Mar. 2024.
