Vaudeville Forms in Polish Theatre at the Beginning of the 19th Century

Marta Mielcarek

Abstract

The doctoral dissertation Vaudeville Forms in Polish Theatre at the Beginning of the 19th Century is the first thesis in Poland to attempt to provide a definition of the vaudeville theatrical and musical form, as well as outline its genesis and indicate the historical conditions influencing its evolution. The initial chapter presents the biography of vaudeville, indicating the following: the terminology and definition, the formation and development of the form from the 15th to the 17th centuries, its dissemination and function, its musical and textual structure, vaudeville in various dramatic genres after 1760, Scribe’s era, the vaudeville finale. The second part is devoted to vaudeville in Poland and its development at the beginning of the 19th century. The dissertation’s third and fourth part branch out into two blocks – a biographical one and an analytical one. The first block presents the profiles of the composers Józef Elsner and Karol Kurpiński, and those of the libretto authors Ludwik Adam Dmuszewski, Jan Nepomucen Kamiński and Alojzy Fortunat Żółkowski (the father). In the second block, the stage works Król Łokietek, czyli Wiśliczanki [King Łokietek, or the Women of Wiślica] and Siedem razy jeden [Seven Times One] by Józef Elsner, as well as the texts written by Karol Kurpiński Zabobon, czyli Krakowiacy i Górale [The Superstition, or Cracovians and Highlanders] and Czaromysł (Książę Popiel) [Czaromysł (Prince Popiel)] are subjected to analysis. The examination of the words is accompanied by musical analytical sketches of the partitures. The dissertation is complemented by rich iconography from the period.
