ArmInfo. Konstantin Orbelian again returned to the post of Drector of the Al. Spendiaryan Opera and Ballet Academic Theatre.
At a press conference on February 11, Orbelyan informed that he has been restored in the post from February 10, 2020.
To recall, on October 8 of last year, the court granted the claim of Orbelyan, in which the he demand to invalidate the order of the former Minister of Culture of the Republic of Armenia Nazeni Gharibyan of March 28, 2019, and to reinstate him as the director of the theater with payment for the forced outage. The Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of the Republic of Armenia appealed against this decision, however, the Court of Appeal sided with Orbelyan. We add that the ministry insisted on its position due to the fact that Orbelyan held two positions at once - the Director and the Artistic Director of the Theatre.
Orbelyan informed reporters that his contract will expire on August 3 of this year. Despite the tight deadlines, he plans to work on new productions. As for the position of the ministry regarding his return to the post, he said that it will become clear during the meeting scheduled for tomorrow. Orbelyan pointed out that due to the situation with his dismissal, from April last year all previous agreements were postponed, including a tour in Dubai, the costs of which the authorities refuse to incur.
