Anoush opera has special importance to Armenian
musical history as one of its most significant accomplishments.
A work of national character, Anoush was the first opera truly inspired by Armenian folk music and culture, and is arguably the most popular Armenian musical and theatrical work. It is high time Anoush receive a new staging by local forces, to grace the stage in Southern California.
