The Opera House at Katara Cultural Village

The Opera House, Building 16, easily recognizable as the tallest building in Katara, is just north of the blue, Turkish mosque and two conical birdhouses.

Most concerts of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra are given in the Opera House, Building 16 of the Katara Cultural Village in the West Bay. While the round of balconies may remind you of La Scala or other Italian opera houses, the furnishings and ornamentation draw on Arabic sources in general and Qatari features in particular.


Located on the opposite side of Education City is the Qatar National Convention Centre. The building is well known for its innovative architectural design that was inspired by the branches of the Sidra tree.
