With my folks in town I decided just off the cuff to take them to the opera house to see what was going on. I hadn't realized that they did tours of the theatre space. I had been before to see Turandot, which was amazing, but the stage left bare really shows the massive size of the back stage area.... More

Used to go there several times a year and it always fascinated me. The atmosphere is just great and the acoustic makes you feel like in a loving room.

Amazing experience as an audience to the various concerts! The building is a landmark in Muscat, no, entire Middle East! There are visitors from various GCC countries to attend the operas and other concerts.

The Opera House is very precious, and the performances are most of the time great. We visited many times and will go again before Summer closure. Also the employees in opera house are very helpful, friendly. Great place to be , everyone should visit it.

I have only attended shows and have not done the tour through the opera house. the shows that I've attended are always of exceptional standard. The dress code is formal and ladies need to have their shoulders covered and dresses must be below the knee.

Impressive new architecture. It shows the culture but also modern architecture. It's worth seeing and locals are very friendly and helpful.

I went to some concerts, they were not pricey since we heard it is subsided by the Government, because Sultan Qaboos loves classical music (and arts in general). The facilities are luxurious, and there is a nice little mall annexed.

I tried to visit and despite checking the Internet it was not giving tours. Plan to go early in your trip in case you run into the same problems. I went my last day and could only look through the doors. Enter through the West side for tours. Looks beautiful.
