Out side stunning.

Worth a visit. Unfortunately when we went we couldn't go in as there was a rehearsal in progress. But there are shops and a gallery to visit and the garden view.

Could not see the interior due to rehearsals, but what we have seen was already quite amazing. Very beautiful building, top cleanness and nice architecture.

We had a tour of this opera house which is exquisite in its decor. The stage can be adjusted according to the size of the cast/orchestra etc, and the surroundings vibrates according to the music giving the best sound.

Stunning place and gorgeous production of Opera! Really special venue and well worth the visit. Smart dress is preferred but smart shoes/trousers/shirt was fine.

Saw the opera house as part of our quick tour of Muscat. Lovely building with some expensive shops nearby. Entrance fee has to be paid to go inside.

The Royal Opera House is quite stunning. I went there to see The Opera! - we were four rows back from the orchestra pit and it was perfect. The auditorium is not too big, so I suspect the views are great wherever you sit. Their website offers a brilliant ticket service which shows the stage view from every seat -... More

One of the nicest buildings around. Looks like no expense has been spared. Intricate woodwork inside, great acoustic and very comfortable seats. Guests going in must be dressed in a tie or local headgear. Tickets can be bought online Pride of Oman
