The Royal Opera house will give lovers of the arts the chance to step out in their finest to watch world-class ballet and opera in a spectacular setting of marble interiors. As an Arab city in a Muslim country, religion has a huge impact on all areas of everyday life, including business, and can emphasize cultural differences. Expats seeking a job in Muscat will need sponsorship from an employer, and it's important to understand the culture of Oman to ensure that certain faux pas are avoided.
