The National Opera and Ballet Theatre after Alexander Spendiaryan will stage a ballet La Boheme based on the songs of Charles Aznavour, choreographer, People’s Artist of Armenia Rudolph Kharatyan told reporters today. The one-act play will track Aznavour’s creative path.
Among the important works of 2012, Rudolph Kharaytyan pointed out the “Two suns” ballet dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
In 2016 Kharatyan will also stage “Anush” ballet, which, he said, has nothing to do with Armen Tigranyan’s famous work.
Through combination of classical and Armenian national motifs, he will try to create something that will allow the Armenian ballet to enter the international arena. He’s confident we cannot be part of world ballet with “Gayane,” because the latter is too ‘Armenian.’
“Folklore is interesting to foreigners, but within limits,” Kharatyan said.
