The tragicomedy "The Dead's" by Jalil Mammadguluzadeh is the favorite work of the national leader Heydar Aliyev. The great leader said in his interviews, "When I was in high school, I was very interested in theater and frequently watched the performances of the local drama theater ... Thus, our theater played "The Dead's," and I watched this performance several times with great pleasure. “The Dead's" is a profound philosophical work. Due to its philosophical significance, it ranks first among the dramatic works of Azerbaijani literature. At the same time, its strong national spirit distinguishes it from other works ... I am familiar with all dramatic works, starting with Shakespeare. I think no one has ever managed to create a play comparable to "The Dead's". Coming up with such a theme requires philosophy and imagination..."

Heydar Aliyev was very close to the theater from an early age. Heydar Aliyev, who performed on the stage of theater clubs during his school and student years, loved theater very much and referred to the Azerbaijani National Theater as our national wealth. The national leader regularly watched theater performances, met the creative staff, and gave his recommendations and instructions.

The Heydar Aliyev Center plans to organize a number of projects and events in conjunction with the decree of the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev declaring 2023 the year of Heydar Aliyev in our country. The Heydar Aliyev Center will host a number of theatrical productions as part of the Heydar Aliyev and National Theater Art project.

You can obtain tickets for "The Dead's" at the box office of the Center, and at the iTicket.az sale points and website.
