As soon as the music started I got transposed to another world. The quality of the artists combined with the amazing acoustics is captivating, enchanting. Close your eyes and travel to the Viennese Opera, Carnegie hall, or just let your mind take you places... The opera building is beautifully decorated, too.

Whether or not you are an opera or ballet fan, you really should put the Opera House on your 'must see' list. This elegant building is a real pearl of the Middle East. The programmes are varied, and you will be so surprised by the ticket prices - they make opera and ballet accessible for everyone.

Very impressive, have not been there to see and opera yet! The adjoining mall has many up-market shops, and a great place for afternoon tea. The restaurant MORE is fine dining and a lovely place for a lunch.

I attended a dance musical from kazhakstan and other nearby nations in Feb 2013. The performers totally enthralled the audience for about 3 hours. The building itself is spellbing showcasing Oman's culture.Would definitely like to visit again.
