Stefan Makedonski State Music Theatre

Rating

Within our most recent cultural reality, the Stefan Makedonski State Music Theatre takes a worthy place next to the leading national and world music institutes. The 65-year-old history of the country’s only genre-specific theatre is inseparable part of the history of Bulgaria’s professional musical comedy art which reached a dignified national statute as early as in the 30s of last century.

 

After the capital’s last private theatre – the Art Theatre of Music Comedy – was nationalized and renamed as State Operetta (1947), under a new government-issued decree, the State Music Theatre was founded, which in 1952 was named after its first director – Stefan Makedonski (who had also contributed to the strengthening of the capital’s first professional private music comedy theatre – the Free Theatre).

 

The theatre building was inherited from the Art Theatre of Music Comedy and then renovated.

 

The theatre’s repertoire is a unique continuation of the genre traditions in the field of classical operetta that the troupes followed up to 1947.

 

The theatre has remained a unique phenomenon in the country’s art life to this day and is the only one of its kind on the Balkan Peninsula.
