The Edinburgh Festivals are the largest arts festivals in the world. Each summer, every inch of Edinburgh is transformed into a performing arts venue as the world’s best creators, directors, devisers, comedians and artists descend on the capital – and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland also takes part in this world-renowned stage.

Musial Theatre at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Our MA Musical Theatre programmes has been taking productions to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for more than a decade, with Production and Music students also involved in creating new work alongside their drama peers. These performances include a month-long run of a fully-staged musical, as well as two new platform pieces.

Edinburgh International Festival

The Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) is a highly prestigious festival attracting the world’s leading artists and producers. Previously, Voice students have had the opportunity to perform at the EIF, alongside RCS alumna Karen Cargill and conductor Edward Gardner.

This year the EIF features performances from a range of RCS graduates, including Catriona Morison, Cardiff Singer of the World competition winner 2017.
