GENERAL INFORMATION

The musical comedy (operetta) Cloth Peddler/Arşın Mal Alan was composed and staged by the founder of Azerbaijani opera and classical music Uzeyir Hajibeyli in 1913 in Baku, Azerbaijan. This musical comedy with amazing music and breathtaking plot is considered to be the first of its kind in the entire Muslim world. Over the last 100 years, the operetta has been successfully performed in a plethora of languages in over 60 countries of the world, including in Austria, France, China, Greece, India, Russia, Turkey, etc. The musical was performed 300 times in China alone. Its greatly acclaimed 1945 film version was dubbed into 86 languages and shown in 136 countries.

It is the first time that this unique musical comedy will be performed at such a scale in the English-speaking world in general, and in the U.S. in particular. Held by the Consulate General of Azerbaijan in Los Angeles and produced by award-winning American producer Michael Schnack, the musical comedy will be performed on Sep. 7 at 7:30pm by outstanding American opera singers at the Music Center's Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, which, being one of the premier opera houses of the world, and home to the renowned Los Angeles Opera, is also famous for hosting Oscar Awards ceremonies in 1970-90s. The performers will be singing in Azerbaijani (with projected English translations) and speaking in English. A Los Angeles-based orchestra of exquisite musicians will play the music.
