Summary/Abstract: This article deals with the stagings of Bulgarian playwright Konstantin Iliev’s Music from Shatrovets in the light of three significant productions, characterised by a particular focus on the space of the performance, by Luben Groiss, Nikolay Lutskanovand Stoian Kambarev with set designers Georgi Nozharov, Georgi Ivanov and Violeta Radkova respectively, presented at Blagoevgrad Drama Theatre (BDT) (1973); Popular Stage Theatre (PST), Sofia (now Bulgarian Army Theatre (BAT) (1979) and Ruse Drama Theatre (RDT) (1989). The author’s interest focuses on how the image of the space, based on the dramaturgy, has been transposed into the three productions. Konstantin Iliev’s play is a dramatic work with a language in its own right, which is especially attractive and at the same time curious as a mechanism of playwrighting. The spaces of all three productions are similar in terms of spirit and intention, yet different and created by different subjective individualities and this is the reason why the focus is put on the tandem work of director/set designer pairs.
