Near the picturesque square of A. S. Pushkin, near the theater square, there is the Turkmen national musical and drama theater of Makhtumkuli. Its stage became the center of the opera art which is again revived in our country at the initiative of the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in 2008.
The repertoire also abounds with the classical works based on eposes and destana of east poets. D. Ovezov and A. Shaposhnikov's opera "Shasenem and Garip" became the first musical performance which was heard and seen by the audience.
The legend of the Turkmen opera of Mai Kuliyev became the chief consultant of a performance. Remarkable acoustics of the auditorium allows to hear accurately the thinnest musical modulations of opera works.
