Yerevan_Operahouse

The Alexander Spendiarian Armenian Opera and Ballet National Academic Theatre in  Yerevan was officially opened on 20 January 1933. The building was designed by the Armenian architect Alexander Tamanian. The building consists of two concert halls: Aram Khatchaturian concert hall and the hall of the Alexander Spendiarian Opera and Ballet National Theatre.

 

 

 

Aram_Khachaturian_Concert_Hall_2Aram Khachaturian Concert Hall is one of the architectural pearls of Yerevan. Alexander Tamanian, the prominent Armenian architect, first planned to build the winter and summer halls with two amphitheaters separated by stages. During the various festivities, these two stages would then combine into a hall with a total capacity of 3000 seats. The plan of the building and its miniature were presented at the World Exhibition in Paris, 1936, and awarded the Grand Prix. Unfortunately, technical problems and conditions, and Tamanian's untimely death in 1936, prevented the project from being fully realized.

 

 

hamalirKaren Demirchyan Sports and Concerts Complex, also known as Demirchyan Arena, Sports & Music Complex, or simply Hamalir (for complex in Armenian), is a huge sports and concert complex located on Tsitsernakaberd hill which dominates over the western parts of Yerevan, near the Hrazdan River  gorge. The complex consists of two big halls; the concert hall and the sports hall, in addition to the Hayastan conferences hall designated for political summits with a huge space which gives the facility to organize fairs and exhibitions. The complex has a unique design, an outside view of the whole construction reminds the shape a big bird opening its wings. Its architectural concepts include a turning tribune seating 1200, which can rapidly connect the two big halls to reveal additional seating, a concept for which the architects were awarded the USSR State Prize -the highest of its kind- in 1987. Nowadays, the sports hall is mostly used for figure skateing shows and events all around the year. It was also the home of World Youth Boxing Championship in May 2009.
