Not every theatre company can boast a long history of several decades. But music and drama theater in Kyzylorda can - they are already 60 years old. That's how much the troupe celebrated at the end of 2015.
The theater itself began with amateur movement in state and collective farms. Several such enthusiastic circles have united and their first performance played in late November 1955. And the debut work was the tragedy of «Akan Seri - Aktokty» Gabit Musrepova. It was a powerful production. It immediately attracted the attention of viewers and artists. Masters of the stage were appreciated and five years later, in 1960, the theater moved to Kyzyl-Orda.
Already in 1967, it was named after Nartay Bekezhanov, the honored worker of arts of the Kazakh SSR, akin and composer. The present name of the group was given in 1997.
