The Muziektheater is the most important opera and ballet venue in the Netherlands. It is part of the Stopera, a complex that also houses the city hall. The Muziektheater (The Music Theater) is home of The Dutch Opera, The National Ballet, and the Holland Symphonia. The music theater is situated at the borders of the river Amstel in one of the oldest parts of the city.

The idea of building a complex that would house a music theater and a city hall first came up in 1915. It took long for the plan to materialize, but in 1981 the City Council finally took the decision to go forward with the project. The Dutch architect Cees Dam was appointed to build the Music Theater in cooperation with Wilhelm Holzbauer, who was responsible for the city hall. The Music theater celebrated its officially opening in 1986 and the City Council moved to the new city hall in 1988.
