The Musiktheater Linz is a venue of the Landestheater Linz. The building, designed by Terry Pawson, was built between 2008 and 2013 and serves as the theater and opera house of the city of Linz. The official opening of the music theatre, which was opened on 11 April 2013 by Heinz Fischer, took place on 12 April 2013 with the world premiere of the opera Traces of the Lost by Philip Glass, based on the play of the same name by Peter Handke. Political disputes over the location, the announcement of two architectural competitions and the holding of a referendum were the causes of the several years of delays in the start of construction. Since the 2016/17 season, the Musiktheater has been directed by Hermann Schneider together with the Landestheater Linz.
