The paper deals with two opera performances of the Střežený ParnassTM (Guarded ParnassusTM) art group from Brno – Arias That Money Cannot Buy (2002) and Phantom or Bloody Opera (2005). These two stage works, commissioned for the National Theatre in Prague, provoked quite controversial reactions because of loosened postmodern poetics to which the Czech opera visitors and critics are still not accustomed. Treating both performances in a global context of current operamaking, I intend to emphasize the transformations the opera genre and its cultural reflection undergone in world during last decades.
