This is the place we got the clue from the previous visitors of Muscat to MUST see place criteria. Really worth watching place. The guards allowed us visit every place including the auditorium, although there was no shows on these days.

One of the best experience of our life time. Thoroughly enjoyed, worth a visit. We will recommend this place to all the tourists of Oman. Professionally maintained. Only one request the timings should be extended so that we don't have to rush up with the visit, there are so many great things to see there.

Majestic opera house, unreal experience. Saw Verdi`s " La Traviata". But most of the time I was admiring architecture of the royal opera house. Must visit place!

a beautiful and quite magnificent structure which houses a state-of-the-art stage and auditorium. the gardens and rooftop are worth a visit, as well as the beautiful foyer - see if you can sneak into the member's lounges - quite a sight.

The dearth of entertainment in Muscat is one of the main complaints of residents of this city. The Royal Opera house fills that void a tinny bit, thank god! I have seen a few performances here and they have been good but expensive!!! Not much choice however!

one can find some good shows but the tickets are on the pricey side. The one bid drawback I have is the over the top dress code! Ladies have no choice but to wear dresses below the knee and shoulders have to be covered. If not then you are forced to wear an Abaya. And all th is is overseen... More

The opera house offers a very good musical programme within a very nice setting, with a great internal cafe where they serve excellent breakfast
