Mehr News Agency - Tehran hosting 'Hallaj' opera at Niavaran Complex

TEHRAN, Aug. 20 (MNA) – Iranian composer, vocalist, and performer Parvaz Homay is directing and performing the Opera of Hallaj at Niavaran Complex in northern Tehran.

The opera narrates the story of Mansur al-Hallaj (858-922 CE), a Persian mystic, poet and teacher of Sufism, who was executed by then Caliph of Baghdad Al-Muqtadir on religious and political charges. Parvaz Homay, also known by his birth name Saeed Jafarzadeh, is the founder of Mastan Ensemble. He specializes in Persian classical music.
