Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz , commonly also called Gärtnerplatztheater, 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 there are also productions of opera, 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.
