The article concerns the issue of musicality in the pantomime entitled Skrzypek opetany written by Boleslaw Lesmian (1878-1937), the famous Polish modernist poet and writer. It opens with the description of the genesis and of the content of the analysed work. The main part of the article deals with the fairy-tale convention so characteristic of Lesmian and realised in his Skrzypek opetany with the help of elements of a musical character. Subsequently, all the aspects of musicality (and references to music) were analysed in detail, in an interdisciplinary approach. This analysis includes also the chosen issues of a theoretical Lesmian reflection on rhythm, song and dance.
