Description

Westword's Description

The historic Central City Opera House is fascinating in and of itself: Built in 1878 by miners, it boasts gorgeous fresco on its ceiling, and there are names of notable Coloradans of yore -- such as Horace Tabor and Buffalo Bill -- carved on the backs of the seats. (Those carvings were transferred when the seating was updated in 1999.) But the venue's real beauty lies in its programming, which is showcased with the opera house's beautiful acoustics. Every summer, Central City Opera presents three productions for opera lovers in the metro area, a mix of one classic, one lesser-known and one American opera -- proof that this small town knows how to put on a big show.

Merchant's Description

In addition to the summer Festival, Central City Opera’s Bonfils-Stanton Artists Training Program offers career-entry opera training to today’s young artists with career management classes as well as main stage rehearsal and performance opportunities. Year-round opera education and community engagement programs entertain and educate more than 100,000 people each year across the Rocky Mountain region. A steward of historic preservation, the company also maintains the Central City Opera House and 30 other Victorian-era properties which serve as performance and rehearsal venues and house Festival staff each summer.

    The 550-seat jewel-box theater was built in 1878 by Welsh and Cornish miners and continues to draw international applause with classic to contemporary performances each summer.
