Opera Galleria hosts popular lunch music event

When: December 2, 12:30pm

Where: Royal Opera House Muscat

Saturday, 2nd December 2017, is the date for ‘Lunch Music’ for Puccini’s best loved arias at the Opera Galleria. The artists of the touring company, AsLiCo, will perform a complimentary public concert ahead of their performance of The Moth Princess on 9th December at 7pm. The event will start at 12.30 pm.

Lunch Music is a great introduction to opera for children and for sceptics of this genre of music. In addition, it is a perfect treat for established fans of Puccini. The informal stage, located in the atrium of the Opera Galleria, allows visitors to experience opera on their own terms. Families are encouraged; children free to wander around as the music is played.  For some people the opera will be a moment to pause and appreciate the magnificent music, for others it can be the background music to a meal with friends or family and for others still, it can be just a moment of interest as they go about their day.  Audiences are free to come and go as they please.

The calendar for ‘Lunch Music’ continues on the 16th December. ROHM invites you to join for a lunch hour of Pavarotti’s most loved songs in connection with the ‘Homage to Pavarotti’ concert on the 14th December at 7pm.
