Based on the archive materials, the article looks more closely at the development of musical theatre in Russian provinces in the first quarter of the 20th century in Saratov. The study is centred around the main trends in the development of the theatrical life of the city, the projects realized, as well as the personality of Saratov’s artist F.A. Palchinsky – an entrepreneur, stage director and musical critic. Various spheres of his activity reflect the key aspects of the development of Russian musical theatre of the time period in question, and namely popularizing the art of Russian composers, highlighting the didactic function of musical theatre, relying on local performers, especially the younger ones, and aspiring to make musical art widely accessible (Popular theatre). The above-mentioned artistic aims were fulfilled in Palchinsky’s creative projects, as well as in numerous reviews in Saratov’s periodicals. The paper arrives at some conclusions concerning the intensity of the development of musical theatre in Russian provinces, the search for new forms of existence of musical theatre and the implementation of innovative directing principles.
