Everybody Loves Opera

At the end of January, there’s always an extra-special belated holiday gift – the announcement of the next season! And what a season…it's like a delicious cupcake mixed with decadent ice cream and made the perfect flavor, er, season.

La Bohème
November 6 – 14, 2010

Everyone’s favorite opera! It’s like a late nineteenth-century version of a sitcom following the lives and loves of close friends. Soaring, beautiful melodies? Check. Best bohemian buds struggling to find their way in the world? Check. A saucy soprano and a sweet seamstress with cold hands? Double check!

February 12 – 20, 2011

Think The Little Mermaid, but darker. A beautiful little water sprite longs to be human, and finds out she should be careful what she wishes for. BONUS: Opera Colorado’s putting on a Czech festival of the arts called Czech Point Denver. Details will be announced in the coming months, so stay tuned.

Cinderella (La Cenerentola)
April 30 – May 8, 2011

Another classic story of love, only Rossini’s version has a few twists that make it extra special. Filled with engaging characters and some of Rossini’s greatest ensemble pieces, it’s a family-friendly opera in which the power of goodness triumphs.

Current subscribers can start renewing their seats now – and a ton already have. If you’re a season ticket holder, you can call 303.468.2030 or go online to renew. As for me, I’ll be getting back to Barber soon. See you then!
