Description

The flamboyantly designed Princess Theatre first opened in 1857 and was remodelled in 1886. The theatre is haunted by a friendly ghost, Federici.

Many of the world’s most successful productions have been staged here, including Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Cats, Mama Mia! and The Producers.

The theatre’s ghostly presence dates back to 1888, when opera singer Federici died after a performance of the opera ‘Faust’. On every opening night, a seat in the Dress Circle is left empty for Federici and it is a sign of good luck if there is a sighting on that night. Many staff over the years have reported sightings of the friendly ghost.
