The Institute of Musicology has three functions (research, archiving of national collections, and organization of scholarly events), its task is research into the history of music of historical Hungary, the publishing of sources, and formulation historical summaries. This project is part of our ongoing research and would orient it, through institutional contacts, toward other current projects in the region on a similar topic, thus helping to avoid the commonly known traps of national historiographies. 19th-century music history research has been a project of the Department for Hungarian Music History of the Institute for Musicology for several decades. After numerous publications, with the outset of the critical edition Ferenc Erkel Operas (1998) the research activities on musical theatre were renewed, too. The realization of this project is facilitated by the fact that it is part of a NRDIO project on processing the National Theatre’s and playbills carried out by the staff of the Department for Hungarian Music History.
