Nargiz (1935), composed by Muslim Magomayev (1885-1937) and librettist Mammad Sayid Ordubadi, was the first Azerbaijani opera in European format. It was also the first Azerbaijani opera based on a contemporary plot. The plot depicts the struggle between peasants and landlords in the 1920s. It also emphasizes woman's freedom in both social and personal spheres at a time when women were confined to traditional roles, wearing veils and staying at homes. Nargiz represents the transition that was taking place in women's status in Azerbaijan during the 1920s.
