State Academic Theater named after Alisher Navoi

Theater named after Alisher Navoiy in Tashkent. The history of the theater begins in 1929, when lovers of the concert ethnographic ensemble came under the leadership of M. Kari-Yakubov and organized a professional theater. In 1939 it was renamed the State Uzbek Theater of Opera and Ballet, and in March 1948 it was merged with the Russian theater and named the State Opera and Ballet Theater named after Alisher Navoi. Later, in 1959 the theater was given the status of an academic theater, and in 1966 - the Bolshoi Theater. The unique building was built according to the project of the academician architect V.A. Shchusev. Each of the six side foyer of the theater has the character of an architectural decoration inherent in this or that region of Uzbekistan (Tashkent Hall, Bukhara Hall, Khorezm Hall, Samarkand Hall, Ferghana Hall and Termez Hall). So, for example, the Bukhara Hall is decorated with ganch carving, superimposed on a mirror surface, like in the palace of Bukhara emir. The halls and foyer of the theater are decorated with wall paintings depicting scenes from the poems of A.Navoi and landscapes of Uzbekistan. The repertoire of the theater is mainly the production of world classics. In addition, there are various concerts and tours of foreign artists.
