Gateway to the Arts in the Heart of Oman

The 500-seat theatre and state-of-the-art digital media library are adjacent to the Royal Opera House, Muscat. The interconnected public foyers of the theatre and the library allow performers and audiences to walk from the nearby hotels to the opera house.

The theatre supports concerts and theatrical productions. It is also the principal rehearsal space for major productions staged at the Opera House. When used for opera rehearsals, the orchestra occupies the stagehouse with the chorus in the audience area. The stagehouse is equipped with 48 motorized line sets, and variable acoustics support a variety of musical and dramatic performances.
