The delicate notes of Yousef Shawki's "Omaniya Symphonica Suite" resonated beautifully around the Royal Opera House of Muscat's new House of Musical Arts, inaugurated with a gala concert Tuesday night.Equipped to host various shows, the expansion completed over the last three years also offers a musical library, cultural center and exhibition space for both permanent and visiting art collections.With the main opera hall housing a 1,600-seat stage better-suited to operas, ballets and large-set productions, the smaller auditorium will allow for more intimate, community-based shows like contemporary dance, jazz concerts and world music performances.Though officially open, the House of Musical Arts will not be fully functional until September when the new season starts, with show listings set to be released in May.
