Oman: Widow Twankey in Muscat?

Now that some of the scaffolding is coming down from the new Opera House, it is possible to get an idea of the inspiration for the design.

According to the architect of the 1,000 seat concert hall, Wimberly Allison Tong  and Goo* (great name), the interior design was based upon early European concert halls. Looks like a great place for a Christmas panto. I'd pay good money to see Puss in Boots or Jack and the Beanstalk in Muscat.

*Be patient with the link which is a pdf document - it's worth the wait.
