Summary/Abstract: The contemporary history of the popular stage creative works in Bulgaria begins with the name of the composer Parashkev Hadzhiev. He has been credited for the creation of the first genre models of Bulgarian operetta, Bulgarian comic opera, and Bulgarian comic ballet from the second half of the XXth century, as well as for the creation of the first Bulgarian musical, based on national classical literature (Ivan Vazov). From the respectable, in their awesome scale and genre comprehensiveness works for musical stage, approximately one-third of them have been successfully premiered on the stage of the State Music Theatre. But, as the first orientations – landmarks in the theatre’s national repertoire, have been outlined those works of Parashkev Hadzhiev, which have objectively imposed an ingenious design of the author’s conception. At the present paper, which is a part of a more extensive research project, the dramaturgical analysis of the comic operas “Once Upon a Time” and “Five Million and a Little More”, aims to show two fundamental models of the specific Hadzhiev’s approach to the comic opera.
