Konstantin Orbelyan again returned to post of Director of Opera and  Ballet Theater

Konstantin Orbelyan again returned to post of Director of Opera and  Ballet Theater

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.
