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!

See their website for performance listings.

  1. Wow! What a treat. I wonder who produces and directs the products? Local or “imports”? On my little island in Western Canada, we have a very active little theater with both local and other troupes, casts and performers. On Saturdays, we can watch a live tele-broadcast of the opera being performed at the Met in New York. It’s amazing to think we are seeing it in actual time. (Morning for us)
