In 1818 Munich finally gained an 'opera house for all' in the form of the Royal and National Theatre at Max-Joseph-Platz. By 1825, however, Klenze's neo-classical structure had to be rebuilt because of a fire, this time with a pillared portico. Since 1875 it has been the venue for the Munich Opera Festival. The National Theatre is home to Bavaria's state orchestra, state opera and state ballet. At 2,500 square metres, this is the third-largest opera stage in the world.
