Summary/Abstract: This paper intends to sum up, from a contemporary critical perspective, the cultural significance of various periods of the centenary history of Bulgaria’s professional operetta theatre, focusing on the social function, the institutional and aesthetic physiognomy of Sofia-based leading private operetta companies in the interwar period and its only genre-profiled National Musical Theatre as their direct successor, which this season marked its seventieth anniversary. The main problematised assumption is that the marked trends in the repertoire polices, stage and performing practices in the centenary development of operetta art on Bulgaria’s professional stage can only be correctly brought forth on the basis of a scientifically objective, rationalised both by the dynamism of historical events and the respective shifts in the sociocultural paradigm and the topical critical reflection.
