Roudaki (850-941 CE) was a Persian poet, born in Central Asia (between the legendary cities of Samarqand and Bukhara), then part of the Persian Empire.  He was among the first poets to write in what is now the Persian alphabet, then the ancient Persian language using an adaptation of the Arabic letters.

His works were often set to music; it is said that Roudaki played the lute and had a fine singing voice.  It is partly for that reason that one of the best-known opera houses in Tehran is named after him. He is considered one of the founders of Persian poetry, and Iranian architects are re-constructing his tomb in present-day Tajikistan.
