Bavarian State Opera

The Bavarian State Opera company which was founded under Princess Henriette Adelaide of Savoy has been in existence since 1653. In 1753 the Residence Theatre was opened as major stage. While opera performances were also held in the Prinzregententheater (completed in 1901), the company's home base is the National Theatre Munich on Max-Joseph-Platz.

In 1875 the Munich Opera Festival took place for the first time which nowadays can be viewed as one of the most important opera festivals worldwide.

Sir Peter Jonas became the Staatsoper Staatsintendant (General Director) in 1993, the first British Intendant of any major German speaking Opera House. Since 1998 Zubin Mehta served as music director of the Bavarian State Opera and Bavarian State Orchestra. He was succeeded by Kent Nagano in 2006. In 2008 Klaus Bachler became General Director of the opera company.
