The Opera’s opening was made by “Almast” opera. It has become, for more than 80 years, the glory of our musical culture. The Theatre is the only one in the world that is determined to develop the art of Armenian opera and ballet. What confirmed this was Aram Khachaturyan’s presence with its “Spartacus” ballet. Currently the Opera is living the best times of its existence yet. Many world-renowned starts, creators of ballet can be found on stage.
