Cold autumn of 1942. Second year of war. Former Molotov city, which was renamed after the war to Perm. The Leningrad Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet after Kirov is evacuated here and in the process of tense preparations for the premiere of Gayane ballet. The world of a theatre in evacuation is hungry and cold. Life, with all its wartime period tokens of the home front. Spectacles, performances in hospitals and endless rehearsals. Khachaturian’s final efforts to create “Gayane” coincide with the creation of the first tact of the 2nd symphony. Before the last rehearsal Khachaturian surprisingly receives an order from the mamagement – to write one more dance for the final of the already finished ballet. In 8 hours the composer writes the most performed creation.
