Staatsoper Hannover is a German opera house and company in Hanover, the state capital of Lower Saxony. Its season runs from September to June.

The venue of Staatsoper Hannover is a theatre built in classical style between 1845 and 1852 based on a plan drawn by Georg Ludwig Friedrich Laves. The building was badly damaged in World War II and rebuilt in 1948. In 1985, the acoustics were improved, and between 1996 and 1998 the stage facilities were renovated.

The current Intendant (superintendent) of the company is Michael Klügl. Conductor Karen Kamensek was Generalmusikdirektorin (GMD) of the company, the first American and the first woman to hold the post, from 2011 to 2014. In September 2014, the company announced the appointment of Ivan Repušić as its next GMD, effective with the 2016-2017 season.
