How were the dances that we dance created as well as the musical instruments that we play, and the brilliant architectural monuments? What was the source of inspiration for composers, sculptors, and artists? Which kings, politicians and saints were seriously engaged in the arts, enriching the treasury of world culture? The program "Shades of Art" tries to answer these and other similar questions.
In today's episode, we present when and where the first operas were created, how this art spread, and what problems architect Alexander Tamanyan overcame when designing the building of Yerevan's opera and ballet theater.
