Persian Ballet Dancers, Tehran, 1975

(Left to Right): Hayedeh Changizian and Jamshid Saghabashi, two of greatest Persian ballet dancers in Tehran.
In the above photo which was published in the Persian-language weekly "Kayhan Havai", they are rehearsing for "Bijan & Manijeh";  a ballet by Hossein Delhavi which was ready to perform at Roudaki Hall (Tehran Opera and Ballet House) in October 1975.
Dehlavi has composed this work inspired by Ferdowsi's Shahnameh (National Epic of Persia). The piece was later performed by Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Christian David.
