For four days, the capital city will be colored with a dance mosaic of classical theater art.

 The project is implemented by the initiative of Yerevan Municipality.

Boris Eifman's "St. Petersburg Academic Ballet Theater", Tbilisi's "Z. Opera and Ballet Theater named after Paliashvili" and Yerevan "Al. Spendiaryan National Academic Theaters of Opera and Ballet.

"In terms of volume, it exceeds this year's festival by one to one and a half times.

We will continue to make high-quality art available to our population.

Real ballet fireworks are expected," said Gosh Sargsyan, head of the "Culture and Tourism Department" of the Yerevan Municipality.

The implementation of the project was made possible this year also within the framework of the "National Ballet" held in England, thanks to the income generated from the sale of tour tickets.

"This festival is an important element in the life of our city. And it is very important that all this is available to our fellow citizens, completely free of charge," says maestro Karen Durgaryan.

Yerevan Ballet Days, starting after 2023, are one of the most anticipated cultural events.

The place of the meeting remains the same: in the park named after Tumanyan. Performances begin at 8:00 p.m. An interesting surprise awaits the audience this year to enjoy the evenings more comfortably.
