NOVEMBER 15. 30 students of Russian Academy of Theatrical Arts (former Moscow State Institute of Theatrical Arts) staged Armenian composer Armen Tigranyan’s opera “Anoush” in the Armenian language. The first night of the opera was held in the Theatre of Musical Comedy after Hakob Paronyan in Yerevan today. The staging of “Anoush” opera by the Russian students in the Armenian language is also noteworthy as, in 2002, the 90th anniversary of “Anoush”‘s first staging in Gyumri in 1912 was marked. The project is organized by Yerevan State Conservatory after Comitas, which testifies to the Armenian-Russian close cultural relations.
