The ancient Shushi Fortress will turn into an open-air stage tonight. Avet Terteryan’s “Fire ring” opera will be staged here on the eve of Artsakh’s Republic Day. For the second year in a row the Shushi panorama will be used as a natural decoration.

The final rehearsal was held Sunday. This evening people will have an opportunity to watch the opera about “war, peace and love” as the author once described it. The author of the initiative considers that the atmosphere in Shushi corresponds to the spirit of the opera.

Famous opera singers, the Symphony Orchestra of the Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet after Alexannder Spendiaryan, the ballet troupe and other performers are engaged in the initiative that will be held under the high auspices of First Lay Rita Sargsyan.

The Artsakh premiere of the “Fire Ring” is dedicated to Avet Terteryan’s 85th birth anniversary.
