PARIS/FRANCE: With its 70 artists, the Navasart Armenian Ballet performs on the most famous stages all around the world for now 50 years and initiated thousands of audience members to the Armenian choreographic and musical heritage.
The Navasart Armenian Ballet was founded in 1967 by Eddy Djololian to reproduce and sometimes modernize traditional and folkloric Armenian dances. The company is an invitation to travel and moves the audience between Orient and Occident, like a One Thousand and One Nights’ awakened dream.
