She got the leading role, this time in a 1993 Franco-Armenian movie by Mourad Djanibekian (studio M.J.N.) : « Double barrière ». Nara still had a strong foothold in music, as she was teaching in the Academy "Jardin de Musique" in Courbevoie, France, from 1991 to 1993, then became the principal and teacher at the music school "Monde musical Anna Pavlona" in 1994, in Maison-Alfort, still in France. 1998 is a significant year for Nara: she plays the leading part in the movie "Nostalgie", directed by Frounsé Dovlatian (studio Armenfilm). She receives the women’s performance first prize at the movie festival of Kouibychev, Russia. The movie Nostalgie was projected in Centre Pompidou, within the cycle of "Armenian cinema".

All her musicians are big names. Encounters were on the increase: she composed the entire soundtrack (amongst others, verses sets to music) of Jacques Mercier’s poetic show « Passage », created at the Théâtre le Public in Brussels, in 2006. The show runs, with Nara at the piano and the Bradyaga singer Laurence Waters, in the entire French-speaking world with a huge success. In September 2006, a tour attracted a lot of attention: « Leyla and Majnun », with the singer from Uzbekistan Sévara Nazarkhan (Realworld Records – Peter Gabriel), and the singer from Tunisia Ghalia Benali, under the leadership of Gerry De Mol (Oblomov - …) Nara has many projects in every artistic field she’s already tackled.
