Today from 11am to 12pm there was a special event for the “Announcement of the Second Half of the Inaugural Season” at Royal Opera House Muscat. (At least that is what the email I received from the Opera House stated but now it seems they are changing it to simply a new season. Talk about confusing! :-( ) I was flattered to receive an invitation as a member of “the media” because of my humble little blog here. Unfortunately I have a daytime job (haha) and was unable to attend. Info is now available online at the official Royal Opera House Muscat website.
- Performances start January 16th.
- Inaugural season discount holders can no longer avail themselves of the 35% discount for the 1st half. The only discounts now available are for students (with ID), children and grouprates (15%).
- Group and package sales start January 1st. Go/click here for a clear presentation of ticket packages and special offers.
- Single ticket sales start January 4th. (starting at 3 OR!!!)
- Students, kids and groups cannot get discounts on Tier E & F seats as the ticket prices are already so low at 3 to 15 OR.
