"Leyli and Majnun" - tells the story of love of young man Gacy, nicknamed "Majnun" (Madman) to the beauty of Layla. This poem is considered the pinnacle of creativity of Fizuli. Based on the poem, in 1907 Uzeyir Hajibeyli wrote the first Azerbaijani Opera "Leyli and Majnun"
The opera is based on traditional Azerbaijani mughams, which are performed in their original form - meaning unwritten and improvised. Entire segments of the opera feature specific mughams, depending on the emotional effect the composer was trying to convey. The mughams called Mahur-Hindi, Segah, Chahargah, Kurd-Shahnaz, Bayati-Shiraz, Shushtar, Bayati-Kurd, Shabi-Hijran and Gatar are among those featured in the opera.
