BALLET AND ORCHESTRA – National Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre of Armenia


BALLET AND ORCHESTRA – National Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre of Armenia

As a tribute to the composer Aram Khachaturian and his contribution to Armenian culture, the National Opera and Ballet of Armenia bring a ballet rich in emotion to the forefront of the French stage.In 1941, Aram Khachaturian composed Masquerade for the eponymous play by the Russian poet and playwright Mikhail Lermontov. The music has remained memorable over the decades thanks to its five-movement suite. The premiere was on June 21st, 1941, at the Vakhtangov Theatre in Moscow.

Masquerade is a tragic play that unites love, deception, and mystery. During a great masked ball, the fates of various characters meet and, following an unfortunate misinterpretation, are launched io a dramatic conclusion.

The Opera Theatre is the pride of the Armenian nation, located in the heart of the capital: Yerevan. It is the center of creation for Armenia’s most famous operas and ballets. The curtains of this theater were first drawn on January 20th, 1933. For more than 90 years, it has remained the glory of the national musical scene, allowing the whole world to discover Armenian dramatic arts.

Today, the Armenian Opera and Ballet Theater is working on expanding its repertoire of Armenian and international opera and ballet masterpieces.
