“Natavan” Opera is performed for the first time in Shusha

“Natavan” Opera was for the first time presented in Shusha.


A premiere took place on the last day of the Kharybulbul International Music Festival, and sound of “Natavan” Opera by Vasif Adygoezalov spread across Jydyr Plain.


Dedicated to the life and creativity of daughter of a Karabakh khan, a prominent image of Azerbaijani poetic thought, as well as to public and political events happening in Karabakh at the time, the opera was demonstrated for the first time in Shusha.


Artists of the Azerbaijan State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre were on the scene. The opera was directed by People’s Artist, son of the opera’s author Yalchyn Adygoezalov.


After the presentation of the opera, Yalchyn Adygoezalov said: The fact that “Natavan” Opera was performed in Shusha is an historic event. Today, the composer’s soul is in peace, as the opera is performed for the first time in the city where he was born. Although we have performed the opera repeatedly in Baku, today, this piece of art created another mood in Shusha. What can be better than this. We had been waiting for this for 30 years. Great victories are expecting us ahead, and I believe that new artworks will be created and performed in Zangezur and Khankendi”.
