Rostam and Sohrab (opera)

Rostam and Sohrab is an opera by Loris Tjeknavorian. It is based on the story, Rostam and Sohrab in the epic Shahnameh. Its composition took 25 years. In 1963, Professor Carl Orff granted Loris Tjeknavorian a scholarship, which allowed him to reside in Salzburg and to complete his opera in Austria.

Renowned Iranian director, Behrouz Gharibpour, brought to stage the puppet show "Rostam and Sohrab" based on the opera composed by Loris Tjeknovarian. Rostam and Sohrab puppet opera is the first puppet opera in Iran in which the tragic story of Rostam and Sohrab was displayed. The show involves 100 marionettes and 15 puppeteers. It was first performed in Tehran’s Ferdowsi Hall in 2005. Tehran has been acknowledged as the first Asian city to host a puppet show opera.
