THEATRE AND PERFORMANCE SPACE
TRDL have significant experience in the design of performance spaces. Illustrated below is the Royal Opera House Muscat, won in international design competition. The ambitious brief set by the theatre consultants had at its heart an adaptable auditorium that could transform the opera house to a concert hall with a large moving stage. The architects design challenge was to make this highly crafted technology work in a building that would sound perfect as a natural acoustic chamber and look like a palace for the people of Muscat. The concept was heavily influenced by modern Omani character, blended with the classical style of Paris Opera and the glamour of public urban space in the Lincoln Centre New York to create this timeless gift from His Majesty Sultan Qaboos to his people.
