Cikker's opera works are distinctly close to the European opera of the twentieth century. In his operas, Cikker combined the ideals of national music and national opera with the ideals of the 20th century new opera. The paper analyses the Cikker's development as an opera composer, from the folklore and national music, through the existential, social and ideological themes of his operas to the image of grotesque or quiet resignation. During the Iron Curtain period, Cikker's opera works served as a cultural bridge between East and West but also as a humanizing factor, bringing the important artistic and ethical message.
