I've been to ROHM 3 times now and each show has been great. By far the best was seeing Youssou N'Dour which offered a break from the almost exclusively classical performance schedule. They do offer some very good 5 Rial value tickets but you will probably have to lean forward most of the performance if you opt for these. The... More

It was an amazing experience.. we went there to watch a ballet show it was stunning.. I had this problem though that they wouldn't let me enter at first because of my outfit but then a gentle man made things easier and solved the issue. so be careful ladies wear fancy dresses but cover up well or you will face...

Suggest visit the place to see the Operas or the musicians playing, even if you have been to any other Opera, in any other part of the World. Seats are not expensive (relatively) and the programs are great. I enjoyed mine. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a tour in the Opera house, and had lunch. We liked the place and environment. There are plenty of brand boutiques. I suggest if you were in Muscat to visit the Opera House.

This is what happens if money is no object and you have good taste. An extraordinary building inside and out finished to a very high standard. It is really a concert hall with a very trick stage that allows the whole thing to be reconfigured for opera and ballet. Worth going to just see the inside - they run tours... More

In Royal Opera House I've been on russian performance of classical ballet. As everyone know, russian ballet is the best in all the world!! If you visit Muscat, you have to visit also Royal Opera House. Inside you can see all the richness of Oman. Walls and ceiling covered with Arabic lace with fine woods, wooden, carved columns and door... More
