The Royal Opera House Muscat's spectacular annual military music concert continues to be the most popular event in the seasonal calendar and this year will be no exception. For three nights running during the first weekend in November, hundreds of men and women in the bands of the Royal Guard, Oman's Royal Army, Navy and Air Force, the Royal Oman Police, and the Combined Group of the Royal Cavalry & Camel Band will march in stunning formation, playing classic military music, in colourful and distinctive uniform.


Audiences will experience a magnificent display of military pageantry and patriotism and as they hear the hauntingly beautiful sound of bagpipes and the clarion call of trumpets, they will be proud to recognise that Oman's military musicians are among the finest in the world. Symbolising Oman's inclusive global outlook, the concert will include performances by excellent bands from abroad. The prestigious Austrian Armed Forces Honour Guards will perform along with the entrancing Tanzschule Elmayer Waltz Dance Group from Vienna. And From Bratislava, Slovakia, the distinguished Police Orchestra of the Ministry of the Interior and the amazing KLNKA Folklore Dance Group will give captivating performances.


Tickets are free for this exciting complimentary event which, in order to accommodate the increasingly large crowds who come year after year, will be held on the Maidan at the Royal Opera House Muscat for three nights of the weekend: Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th November at 7:00 pm. Please book your tickets in advance and come at least an hour early.
