Composed in 1952 by famous Azerbaijani composer Gara Garayev, the ballet is based on motifs of the great Azerbaijani poet Nizami Ganjavi’s “Seven Beauties” poem, written in 1197. The poem shares the story of a young prince Bahram, destined to become the ruler of the world, and his encounters with seven beautiful princesses of different ethnic backgrounds. Bahram needs the wisdom of these princesses in order to become a worthy king. This is a story of just governance, tolerance, and multiculturalism.
