One of the primary focuses of Armenia’s main theatre throughout the times was not only to put the spectator into a dialogue with culture, but also it is there that all creative forces are formed, with which the theater has been represented to the audience, giving hundreds of vibrant names to the international cultural family.

Today the theater’s creative teams continue all  the theatrical, musical traditions that were formed during the decades. The theater is a living organism and is permanently found in the process discovering new creative methods, and executing new ideas. The greatest mission of the theatre is continued today by becoming an important cultural destination for the visitor to Armenia.
