Royal Opera House Muscat – Crown of the Middle East!
Having driven passed the Royal Opera House in Muscat
and having watched its progress for three years
(it is on my way to work) I was delighted
to have booked a ticket ( effortlessly through its website)
for the ballet ‘Don Quixote’
in November 2011 for its inaugural season.
Words cannot adequately explain my delight
and enjoyment at this wonderful experience!
From the minute I stepped inside, being ushered by proud,
smart Omanis in National costume I was in sheer heaven!
No expense has been spared, the detail is phenomenal,
the chairs are individually carved, the upholstery lavish and a distinct
Arabian theme permeates!
The acoustics are amazing and the patrons were in
their very best.
It was an absolutely, wonderful experience
and I implore you to go at least once, if you
are given the opportunity.
So . . . I have now purchased my own set of opera
glasses online (the website is linked
to Coventry Gardens, London) and I hope to be a regular patron.
That this ‘Crown of the Middle East’ is finally open in its third
season AND on my doorstep is a double blessing!
Roll on magical fairyland!
