Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz

Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz (State Theatre at Gärtnerplatz) is an opera house and opera company in Munich. Designed by the architect Michael Reiffenstuel, it opened on 5 November 1865 as the city's second opera house after the National Theatre.

At times exclusively concerned with operetta, in recent years the theatre has focussed mainly on opera, though there are also productions of operettas, musicals and ballet. The scope of its activities is similar to that of the Komische Oper in Berlin or the English National Opera in London.

One of the most active theatres in Germany, its season lasts from September to July and comprises more than 200 performances. The former intendant was Klaus Schultz and the current intendant is Dr. Ulrich Peters. The chief conductor from 1999 to 2010 was the American David Stahl, and the director of dance (TanzTheater München) is Hans Henning Paar.
