The Opera House (Armenian National Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet after Alexander Spendiarian) is a landmark in Yerevan located in the northern part of the city center. It opened in 1933 and was designed by Alexander Tamanian, then Armenian architect. The name of the theater came from the great Armenian composer who is the author of opera called Almost, Alexander Spendiaryan. There are parks, cafes, nightclubs and shops surrounding the place. The building consists of two main halls: he Aram Khachaturian Concert Hall and the National Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre.
Since its opening, over 200 different operas and ballets have been performed by Armenians as well as Russian and composers from Western Europe. Also, it has broadened the types of performances beyond opera to more pop music and plays too. This is an excellent place for you to see both traditional and today’s culture of Armenia. Before and after each play, you can also stop by a café or restaurant to have some drinks and meals.
