Staatstheater Nürnberg, Opera house)

The Staatstheater Nürnberg is a German theatre company in Nuremberg, Bavaria. The theatre is one of four Bavarian state theatres and shows operas, plays, ballets and concerts. Until 1 January 2005, it was the Städtische Bühnen Nürnberg (municipal stages)

Its main venue, the opera house (Opernhaus Nürnberg), is one of the largest theatres in German. It was built from 1903 to 1905 in Art Nouveau style by the architect Heinrich Seeling. Other venues are the play house (Schauspielhaus Nürnberg) including the small stages Kammerspiele and BlueBox, and the Meistersingerhalle where the concerts of the orchestra (the Staatsphilharmonie Nürnberg) are held.

Since 2018, the company's Generalmusikdirektorin (General Music Director) is Joana Mallwitz. Her initial contract, announced in October 2017, is for 5 years.[1] She is the first female conductor to be named GMD of the company.[2]
