Baku, October 24, AZERTAC
Students of Baku Higher Oil School (BHOS) have performed the operetta “If Not That One, Then This One” by the great composer Uzeyir Hajibeyli on the stage of Azerbaijan State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater.
The presentation ceremony of the operetta was attended by President of SOCAR, member of Milli Majlis Rovnag Abdullayev, vice presidents of SOCAR, heads of SOCAR’s enterprises, leadership of Baku Higher Oil School, social and political figures, BHOS academic staff, and BHOS students and their parents.
The producer of the musical comedy is Honored Art Worker Hafiz Guliyev; the art director - teacher of Baku Higher Oil School, PhD in art Kamala Mehdiyeva; the accompanist - Honored Teacher Zulfiya Sadigova.
Speaking at the ceremony, Rector of Baku Higher Oil School Elmar Gasimov said that the musical comedy is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the world's first offshore oil rig - the legendary Neft Dashlari (Oil Rocks) field.
He wished the creative team and students who play acting roles in the operetta success in this responsible work. The rector noted that both local and foreign students of Baku Higher Oil School perform in the play.
“Baku Higher Oil School not only trains highly qualified oil and gas engineers, but also tries to nurture worthy citizens for Azerbaijan. We strive to make our students active participants in the socio-cultural life of the country. From this point of view, the operetta “If Not That One, Then This One” will also leave a special mark in their life. The operetta, written by the great composer Uzeyir Hajibeyli in the genre of musical comedy, consists of four parts and includes the Azerbaijani folk music mugham and the gazels by the medieval Azerbaijani poet Fuzuli. The richness of the composition, of course, places great responsibility on our students, but I hope that they will be able to cope with this task”, Elmar Gasimov added.
