An Oscar-winning art director has praised His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said for bringing the Royal Opera House to Muscat and connecting everyone from across the world through it.

Speaking to Times of Oman during rehearsals before the new season kicks in on Wednesday, September 11, Gianni Quaranta said that he always talks about Oman when he is with his friends.

“When I am back home, something that I really love to share with my friends is how happy I am that His Majesty the Sultan, being a lover of opera himself, had this amazing idea of opening the Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM). It is not just a theatre but also a place where people come together, and this is what music does all over the world: it brings everyone and any culture together. So, I would like to thank him as this is something really wonderful”.
