‘Nadad Uldsen Naiz’ musical delivers message on friendship


The much awaited, Uvertura pop opera group’s first musical “Nadad Uldsen Naiz” was performed from January 22 to 24 at the State Academic Theater of Drama.
In the musical, Itgel, a sick man staying in a hospital, dreams of three doors: a mysterious metal door, a regular wooden door and one that is straight out of a fairytale. The doors represent his choices in real life, and his friends must help him choose the right one to save his life.
Uvertura’s lead singer G.Purevdagva portrayed Itgel in the musical. The other members of the group A.Shinebayar, J.Ganbaatar and L.Renchinnyam play Itgel’s friends Sergelen, Tumuruu and Azaa. State Honored Artist Ts.Tumurbaatar played the doctor in the story, which hopes to give the audience a lesson on friendship.
After the performance, audience members remarked that Uvertura’s acting performance in the musical was not perfect, but their singing was as impeccable as ever.
Director of Anir Studio B.Altankhuyag composed the songs for the musical.

Below is a brief interview with State Honored Artist Ts.Tumurbaatar about the musical.

What was the last play you performed in before “Nadad Uldsen Naiz”?

It has been 10 years since I last performed on stage. Last time, I played in “Ayangiin Boroo” of X Tuts Production.

What made you join Uvertura’s musical? They are not professional actors.

We need to support and help young artists who want to challenge their skills in different fields of art. I didn’t sing in the musical, but everyone else sung in the musical. I play a doctor who does bad things secretly. I can’t express my role through singing. That’s why I asked the director not to make me sing. Uvertura sang well.

What was special about your character?

My character was an antagonist. He is a neurosurgeon. I faced difficulties during the musical because I don’t know professional terms. I talked to doctors and studied about doctors. My character faced a difficult challenge of whether to save his own child and let others’ children die.
I thought about doctors’ ethics when I spoke to real doctors.
