Marina Azizyan “Needlework”

Marina Azizyan about herself:

I was born in St. Petersburg on February 28, 1938. My mother, Anastasia Ivanova Sokolova, was an art critic and worked in the Hermitage as a research officer. My father, Tsolak Levonovich Azizyan, was an artist; he lived and worked in Erevan.

I graduated from Leningrad Theatre Institute (class of N.P. Akimov) as a master of the theater.

Performances which I made were presented and are still presented in different cities of the country. I will mention some of them: “Swan Lake” staged by V. Vasiliev (the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow), “Bohemia” (the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow), “The Nutcracker” staged by V. Silimbaev (the Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre named after P.I.
