MUSCAT, June 18 (Xinhua) -- Oman's Royal Opera House in Muscat on Tuesday announced its new 2019/2020 season, which will feature more than 100 international opera, ballet and Jazz shows.

National Ballet of China will perform Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, merging Chinese and Western cultures, said Kamel bin Fahad Al Said, a member of the board of the Royal Opera House.

Al Said said that some 40,000 tickets had been sold during last season.
