Key objectives of the measure:

creation of modern theatre products through the fulfilment of orders for creative work, promotion of Armenian and foreign theatre art in Armenia by organising international and republican theatre festivals, and towards securing the regular activities of 16 creative SNCOs (subsidisation) for technical re-equipment and renovation.
One of the most important factors for ensuring intercultural diversity is carrying out cultural activities that meet the requirements of consumers that are speakers of foreign languages. Nowadays theatres of 32 different genres (drama, opera, ballet, musical, comedy, circus, marionette, puppet, pantomime, short story, youth, etc.) are operating within the Republic of Armenia, providing diverse theatrical performances in foreign languages. For example, in 2007 and 2008, together with Italian “Versilidansa” cultural organisation, the “Small Theatre” of the National Centre for Fine Arts staged “Diary of a Madman” by N. V. Gogol and “Seventh Sense” (in accordance with “Matean Voghbergutyan” (“Book of Tragedy”) by Gr. Narekatsi) plays, which were also performed in Florence, Italy. In 2009 the Theatre staged the German “Ophelia's Shadow Theatre” play (from the tale of M. Ende under the same title), which also took part in festivals in Germany and Austria. In 2011 “Heirs” by P. Eser was staged at "Hamazgayin" State Theatre in four languages (French, German, English and Turkish). During these years, the Russian State Dramatic Theatre after K. Stanislavski included in its repertoire around 25 performances in Russian for people of different ages and with different preferences. In 2007-2011 the repertoire of the National Opera and Ballet Academic Theatre after Al. Spendiaryan included 8 performances, which present the Italian, French and Russian opera art.
A number of events held in the sphere concerned involved ASSITEJ and IETM international organisations, and they were also recognised as the best theatre festivals in the Caucasus region.
