Art And Theatre

The Syriac theater is the pioneer of the theatrical movement in Iraq, as the city of Mosul witnessed the beginnings of the theater by presenting the play (Latif and Khoshaba) in 1893 AD, which was translated by Naoum Fathallah Sahar from the French language. Then the Syriacs presented the first show in the Syriac language in 1912, titled (Aster Melktha – Queen Aster) in Alqosh, prepared by Bishop Estephan Kajo.
The Syriac Heritage Museum sheds light on Syriac theatrical activity, ancient and modern, and presents an introduction to its most prominent Syriac pioneers and influencers, directors, authors, actors and creators in its various fields.
