On May 11, 2010, the opera “Expectation” by People’s Artist Firangiz Alizadeh was, within the framework of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s International Music Project, presented to the public in a new arrangement. President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and his spouse Mehriban Aliyeva watched the opera.

The distinguished feature of the opera in a new arrangement was that an international artistic team participated in its preparation. At the same time, high-end artistic and technological facilities (a moving scene, video installation and sophisticated light partiture) were widely applied in the artistic arrangement of the new show.

Author of the Libretto was artistic director of the “Üns” Creative Scene, member of Azerbaijan’s Union of Writers professor Nargiz Pashayeva. Producer of the show was artistic director of the Moscow “Helikon-Opera” Theatre, people’s artist of Russia Dmitry Bertman, production designer Hartmut Shorghofer, director Vladimir Ponkin, choreographer Edward Smirnov, choirmaster people’s artist Gulbaji Imanova.
