One of my favourite places to go in Muscat. The building is beautiful both inside and out. Look up and around when you enter. The stage moves depending on the event. I've seen opera, African music, pipe bands and school presentations here. There are restaurants, be prepared to spend! A place for many cultures yet very Omani. Well worth a... More

This is a must see when in Muscat. The architecture is exquisite. The staff so helpful, professional, and organized. And the best part is the variety of entertainment. Plays, ballets, musicals, operas, concerts for famous singers. There is always something wonderful to see each day of the week. I have visited at least 10 times the Royal Opera House, and... More

Been going to the ROH since it opened and it has to be said that the team works hard to bring varied and interesting performances every year. The venue itself is beautiful and well worth visiting even if you are not lucky enough to be going to a performance.

This is really something royal as the name says. While passing through the front of the opera house, the huge monument always attracted me with its full glory. Particularly in the evenings, the lighting made the monument more ecstatic. So one Saturday I decided to make a trip inside. There is a 2 OMR entry fee for the tour and... More

I went Turandot. I was stunned by the show and opera house which was more than a rival to the Royal Opera of London and Opera Bastille in Paris. I highly recommend it when travelling to Muscat.

Beautiful architecture and a very special older to visit. Acoustics were magical and the whole place has a refined elegance. The only negative is the lack of refreshment facilities.
