Opening of Armenian Theater in Tbilisi to Postpone for 2 Years

The Armenian Theater of Tbilisi, which has a long history, will not have a new building for several more years. Completion of the planned large-scale construction has been postponed for 2 years, until 2023.

Tbilisi City Hall has already approved the statement of Luiza Khachaturova, director of the Petro Armenian State Drama Theater, regarding the extension of the building construction permit. She applied to the Architecture Service on June 30 this year with a request to change the construction period.

The Human Theater has been out of order for years, with the troupe playing a variety of plays instead of their own. Due to the difficult situation, the construction-reconstruction works of the theater were started with the funding of the charity fund "Cartu", in cooperation with the municipality and the fund. In 2019, the old building was completely dismantled.
