The Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie (or la Monnaie) in French,
or the Koninklijke Muntschouwburg (or de Munt) in Dutch is a theatre in
Brussels, Belgium. Both of its names translate as Royal Theatre of the Mint. Today
the National Opera of Belgium, a federal institution, takes the name of the
theatre in which it is housed. Therefore, la Monnaie or de Munt refers both to
the structure as well as the opera company.
