A grey building which we didn't see from the inside, unfortunately. At night it looks great, standing illuminated at the top of the long avenue of shops.

We were able to attend the performance by the State Dance Ensemble and also a concert by the National Philarmonic Ensemble. Both performances were excellent.

The place is beautiful, went to watch the Armenian Philharmonic and it was a lovely evening. The outside is particularly striking at night.

A great plave where parents can let their kids roam free, rent those battery-run mini-cars, bikes, skates, or even drones. You can chill on the bench, watch them and the view of the Opera house, statues, have an ice cream, or sit in a cafe...More

We have managed to attend an Armenian Folklore Dance at the Opera. It was nice but they were talking in Armenian all the time we couldn't understand any of what they are talking about but we enjoyed the music and the dance.
