The vision of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos of Oman saw this epic structure which can be seen when driving from Airport to Qurum if you take the main Sultan Qaboos Highway, the vision in night is something different and enthralling. The plays and shows normally take place on seasonal basics, check on the opera oman website for tickets and cost.... More

The Opera is very beautiful and worth a visit. They do guided small tours every morning from 8:30-10:30. But if you have the time, then I recommend to buy a ticket for one of the shows. They have international artists and Operas in the programm. You have to wear a nice outfit, with jeans they will not let you in

Beautiful building of incredible architecture. The dress code is elegant. Girls must cover knees and shoulders and you can not use sport shoes. The shows are interesting and full of variety. A must while you are in Muscat.

A must go for the culturally inclined. One of the most beautiful buildings in Muscat. While you can visit it just to see the place, would highly recommend catching a show as well.

The architure of the opera house always reminds me of sand castles i used to make on the beach. It wants to be noticed and have an impact and it certainly does. Plenty of bling but apart from the look of the place its putting on some pretty nice operas, operettas, music events ect. Please visit if you want to... More

The opera house in Muscat is an amazing architectural design. We were able to walk around the outside but was limited to very little access inside. This is a must see when you visit Muscat.
