"MONK" Opera

First Time On The World Scene

We are happy to announce the revival of the Opera "Monk" by Parsegh Ganatchian after nearly eight decades of silence. This event will occur in the Fall 2017 as part of the “First Time Around The World Stage” program organized under the auspices of the Diocese of the Armenian Church Eastern (America) and Archbishop Khajag Barsamian.

"Monk" Opera is unique in its own kind of way, and highly artistic content. It is a major event and a unique incentive for further similar initiatives.There is only one reason for this, to preserve and promote the Armenian culture to the world. This will have a special effect on children who live in New York, to learn the Armenian culture, and preservation operates. “Shushi” dance ensemble, and “Astghikner” vocal ensemble ages 5-16 will take part in the dramatization of the "Monk" Opera. One of the main benefits in this opera is, not only Armenians will participate in this opera, but many other cultures who live in New York. This unique cultural crossroad is where other nations unite with Armenians and sing in Western Armenian language. Our main goal in the world is to keep and spread the treasures of Armenian music.
