The Royal Opera House Muscat has canceled all vocal solo concerts for the 2023-24 season due to the current events in the region.
The company said in a statement, “In View of the current events in the region, the Royal Opera Muscat would like to announce to its audience the cancellation of all vocal solo concerts for its artistic season for the year 2023-24. The season will resume with the classical programme only. A proportion of the proceeds from the classical programme will be dedicated to Palestine in coordination with the Omani Authority for Charitable Works, in solidarity with the people of Palestine.”
These are the latest cancellations at the opera house since the war broke out between Israel and Hamas in October. In October, the company said, “The Royal Opera House Muscat announces the cancellation of the Omani Women’s Day event and the suspension of all other performances until further notice, in solidarity with the People of Palestine.”
