The musical comedy (operetta) Cloth Peddler was composed and staged by the founder of Azerbaijani opera and classical music Uzeyir Hajibeyli in 1913. This musical comedy with amazing music and breathtaking plot is considered to be the first of its kind in the entire Muslim world. Over the last 100 years, the operetta has been successfully performed in a plethora of languages in over 60 countries of the world, including in Austria, France, China, Greece, India, Russia, Turkey, etc. The musical was performed 300 times in China alone.
