Summary/Abstract: Innumerable are the publications on operatic art, operatic stagings in Bulgaria and opera singers; still, specifically targeted studies of operatic art in this country were first undertaken by Prof. D.Sc. Rosalia Bix. Her name of a respected scholar is justifiably associated here with the academic opera studies. Her own published works along with that of her colleague at the Musical Theatre Research Group, founded and led by her at the Institute of Art Studies, BAS, spans the years 1890 to 2010 inclusive. The Group has for two decades searched, scientifically systemised and published comprehensive infor-mation about the foundation and development of the numerous private, public and half-professional musical theatre companies across the country along with their repertoires, directors and performers, as well as the topical reviews published over the years and reflecting on the genres of opera, ballet, operetta and musical. Presently, the team of the Research Group together with the doctoral students continues and extends the knowledge of musical theatre.
