Description The study deals with theoretical writings of Miloš Wasserbauer (1907–1970), Czech opera director. Wasserbauer's articles on opera staging were being published in Czech periodicals and programmes to productions he directed mostly in 1950s and 1960s; several texts are extant as manuscripts in his estate kept by the Theatre Department of Moravian Museum, Brno. Based on these materials and print contemporary references to Wasserbauer's productions, the author strives to grasp and analyse his views on staging operatic pieces. Wasserbaure's ideas on the issue are grouped as follows: the score as a departing point for directorial–dramaturgical concept; realism in staging opera; acting as a part of rehearsal process; staging operas by Leoš Janáček.
