We took the tour through here on our way to muttrah, staff were lovely and the building itself is unreal.

This is a must visit when in Muscat. There is a huge amount of carved teak and the double staircase in the entrance is very beautiful. Our guide told us how the size and shape of the stage can be altered and even the walls of the auditorium can go in and out. It truly is a spectacular building

This is a very impressive building to visit. There is a car park directly opposite. You have to join a tour to go round. The auditorium is amazing - A very interesting visit

Informative and interactive tour of the opera. You feel how proud the Omanis are of themselves. Informative and interactive tour of the opera. You feel how proud the Omanis are of themselves.

The Royal Opera House Muscat is located in Shati Al Qurm. It was commissioned by the Sultan of Oman Qaboos bin Said and built with royal luxury.
There is a beautiful concert hall with an organ, an auditorium that can accommodate up to 1100 people.
The complex is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens.
Definitely worth visiting this place, if not for a concert, then just to admire the unique architecture.

My guide, Amina, was very knowledgeable.
A magnificent building and well worth the modest entry fee. Would highly recommend a visit.

The performance of the Nutcracker was beautiful in the Opera of Muscat. The booking was easy, the staff friendly and helpful and I could easily modify my original booking.

We visited the Royal Opera House Muscat as part of our city tour. The tour guide was full of interesting information about the construction of the building and its uses and so on. The guide also provided information about the musical instruments and objects on display in the building.

I visited the place multiple times to go the shops in the Opera Galleria side...The interior lighting and design has uplifting feels to it...The good thing about this place is you'll hear opera music playing at every area of the place and can only be heard with a calm mind...

It's definitely worth visiting; the architecture, the finish of the surfaces, the place is really amazing.
