Armenia's opera and ballet staff demand acting minister of culture to resign
The staff of Opera and Ballet National Academic Theater gathered near the Armenian government's building to protest against the decision to dismiss theater's manager Constantine Orbelian.
They call to cancel the decision and to dismiss acting Minister of Culture Nazeni Gharibyan for her decrees, which contradict the law and disrespect towards culture and cultural figures, News.am reported.
Orbelian was dismissed as a manger but remains an artistic director of the theater. Orbelian said he will leave the theater in this case.
The managers of theaters gathered at Armenia's Union of Theater Artists where almost all directors signed a letter addressed to Nikol Pashinyan demanding immediate resignation of Nazeni Gharibyan.
