We loved the tour and, later on, the opera. A wonderful experience. Even just the outside of the building is worth a visit and we especially recommend the annual military tattoo, that we also had the privilege to attend.

Loved attending at the Opera House - It is beautiful in design inside and out. Only the finest of materials used and it shows. Acoustics were awesome. The season runs fall and winter with some of the best talent in th world performing here. During the interval be quick not to miss out on your choice of hot or cold beverage Dress code in effect so dress appropriately from home. Otherwise you may have be lucky enough to rent something that fits. Day tours allow you to see the spectacular inside and out. A definitely must see especially if you are an opera enthusiast, an architecture lover or if you just love visiting beautiful places.

A really amazing building, like palace, due to the fact that the Sultan loved opera! White, shiny marble from Oman and Italy, nice gardens all over the place, coffee shops and expensive stores. I didn;t have the chance to listen an Opera but the place also hosts guests from abroad. It worths a visit!
