At Tashkent’s college of culture, a round-table conversation entitled “Theatrical art: yesterday and today” has taken place.
This event was arranged on the occasion of World Theatre Day. Artistes of the Muqimiy Uzbek state musical theatre, art experts, teachers and students of the college and representatives of mass media were invited to the round-table conversation.
At the event, it was noted that work being carried out in this country to develop theatrical art helped to raise the morality of people, especially young people, and helped them to develop harmoniously. Plays being created by the country’s theatrical groups to high artistic standards serve these noble purposes.
A decree dated 26 March 1998 of the country’s First President Islam Karimov “On developing theatrical art in Uzbekistan” is an important guidance document in this sphere.
Such contests and festivals as “Debut” and international theatre festivals play an important role in showing theatrical art’s successes.
“World Theatre Day is widely celebrated around the world. On this day, we, actors, traditionally hold meetings, conversations and moral enlightenment events, and new plays are shown at theatres,” says M.Sotvoldiyeva, an artiste of the Muqimiy Uzbek state musical theatre.
During the event, episodes of plays were performed by artistes of the Muqimiy Uzbek state musical theatre and students of the Tashkent college of culture. Songs about the Motherland, peace, goodness and wellbeing were also performed.
