Live performance, the gift that keeps on giving

You may have already noticed, but we’re pretty keen on education and outreach around here. We love reading articles about how arts exposure during childhood helps with learning and emotional growth. We are thrilled to see middle and high school students in our Generation OC program learning about practical life skills like marketing and communication by way of opera. We also love hearing stories and receiving notes from people of all ages who have recently experienced their first opera. We want everyone to enjoy opera as much as we do and experience it for what it is, a compelling story told through music. 

With the holidays right around the corner, why not consider giving a gift of live performance? Get a season ticket package and bring your family to our main stage productions for three special nights out together. (Ticket to individual operas are also available!) Send your neighbors an Opera Colorado gift certificate so they can attend an opera for the first time. Purchase an outreach performance of Carmen or The Barber of Seville for your child’s school or your local community center. Not only would you be supporting your local non-profit arts organization, but you will also be providing an unforgettable experience for your children, your friends, and your community.

Make a real impact this holiday season. Give the gift of live performance!
