Tajikistan’s Opera-Ballet is scheduled to re-open in connection with the Novruz holiday. On the playbill: Sharofiddin Saifiddinov’s 1975 opera “Rudaki,” which commemorates the life and work of the 9th century Persian poet born in what is now Tajikistan.
By the late Soviet period, the building was in an advanced state of decay due to decades of neglect. The moment of its salvation came in 2003, following a performance of the opera “Rustam and Sohrab,” which draws on the work of the 11th century Persian poet Abdulqasim Firdowsi. Tajik President Imomali Rahmon happened to be in attendance, and was appalled to find the theater in such decrepit condition. The president is said to have decided that immediate action was needed to save the facility, when he witnessed an equipment malfunction during the performance.
Turkmenistan concerts, theatrical shows, exhibitions and soirees are being held throughout the country.
“Nowruz Bayramy, which is part of social life of the state and newest history of Turkmenistan as a national spring holiday, inspires all who work with honesty and enthusiasm to new victories and successes in the epoch of new revival and great transformations. Life is blossoming with Nowruz. Farmers lay the foundation for future yields of wheat and vegetables on this sacred soil of our ancestors.
The tournament was organized by the Football Federation and the State Sport Committee on Tourism and Sport on the occasion of Nowruz spring holiday.
