Royal Opera House Muscat - Review

Set in the heart of the Shatih-Al-Qurum area, the Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) is a beautiful example of contemporary Omani architecture in the Sultanate of Oman. The white marble facade is beautifully lit up a golden-yellow in the evening and makes for a stunning sight. Built by a royal decree of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, it was designed and constructed by Carillion Alawi and completed in 2011. A debut season which included performances by artists such as Placido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli and Renee Fleming, the Opera House has also seen performances by The London Philharmonic Orchestra and the American Ballet Theatre. ROHM Muscat hosted some biggest cultural events in Oman.

The grounds of the Opera house Muscat contain formal and well horticulture gardens, and include an area which has exclusive retail shops and restaurants. There is also an art centre dedicated to musical, theatrical, operatic art of the region and the world. The Public Authority for Crafts Industries (PACI) has a store named the “Omani Artisan House” which serves to promote handmade Omani products from around the region. A perfect place to buy souvenirs and Omani handicraft. If you do not have the time to go for a show, they also organize Royal opera house tours of the facility in the mornings. The line-up of artists matches the best in the world, and the acoustics in the theatre are rated as among the best in the world.

Royal Opera House Muscat, Muscat Reviews

  • A beautiful structure, visit price is R.O. 3, last tour at 5pm so the office can close on time at 5:30pm and get ready for the performance. A small high end shopping mall is just right next to it.

  • An absolutely stunning building, particularly at night. It blends traditional architecture with some modern twists and the results are amazing. Some great restaurants in there too.

  • a gorgeous building. really artistic and clean. The staff is really friendly and the drinks are good!

  • Lovely place especially if you want to know more about Oman and the culture, the materials and architecture. Saw a performance of different types of instruments very interesting and good experience. It's a must for a once in a lifetime experience.

  • When we went inside the Opera house not to watch a performance just see what inside in the Opera house. Oh the architect was awesome. I can imagine the sound that playing in Opera will be amazing
