Edinburgh International Festival

Macbeth - Teatro Regio Torino

The flagship Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) marks its 70th anniversary in 2017. A high-brow assembly of some of the world's best music, opera, theatre, and dance companies, the festival was launched in 1947 as a stage for peace and unity in Europe after the Second World War. It was out of the Festival that the now massive Edinburgh Fringe sprung and grew in subsequent years.
