Opera by the canal.

Surrounded by canals, the Muziektheater or the Amsterdam Opera houses the National Ballet and National Opera of the Netherlands. The building, built in the '80s, also houses the Amsterdam Town Hall earning it the nickname "Stopera" (a hybrid word to describe the town hall and opera).

Companies around the world are also welcomed here to present the public with prestigious international programming that has enhanced the institution's reputation.
