The pride of the Armenian nation, the Opera theatre, is located in the heart of the capital city Yerevan. It is not simply a cultural structure, but an architectural masterpiece, as well, the creator of which is world-renown Academician-Architect Alexander Tamanyan. It is not a coincidence that Tamanyan was honored first place in 1937 in Paris, during the world architecture exhibition.
Other than that, the theatre was founded during the hardest years for the Armenian people, when in the years preceding the opening the nation was living in dire conditions. However, having an Opera theatre had a higher priority, regardless of the financial difficulties of that time. It is from here that every single Armenia’s famous opera piece, ballet, and colors from the stage arose. The newest cultural symbol of Armenia represents itself to us today in its complete form, with its classical beauty, grandiose stage, amphitheater with more than 1050 seats, as well as with its beautiful hallways.
