The Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra - Navoi Bolshoi Ballet (Uzbekistan)

Body: 

Jamshed Bhabha Theatre

Uzbekistan has inherited an exceptionally rich cultural legacy, dating back thousands of years. Due to its privileged position at the cross-roads of the great antique trading routes, notably the famed Silk Route, its cultural traditions have been enriched by Eastern and Western civilizations. During the last century, ballet and opera, were introduced into the country and in a short period of time, reached a high level of international recognition.

The Navoi Opera and Ballet Grand Academic Theatre in Tashkent, named after the famous poet and philosopher Alisher Navoi, is one of the leading centres of performing arts in Central Asia, frequented by several famous conductors, musicians and artistes. It is one of the three theatres out of more than 700 that were given the status of Bolshoi (Big) in the erstwhile Soviet Union. The Company has graced the stages of La Scala, Milan, the Paris Opera, Covent Garden, the Metropolitan and the Bolshoi and Mariynski Theatres. Its wide repertoire, which is growing steadily, ranges from classical favourites such as Swan Lake and Don Quixote to original creations, inspired by ancient Uzbek folk tales. Its performances are rated as among the best in the world.
