This year, Opera Colorado is thrilled to reopen our doors for Family Day at the Opera for the first time since February 2020! Family Day 2023 will feature the 2022-23 Opera Colorado Artists in Residence in two performances of our abridged production of The Pirates of Penzance.

Full of sentimental pirates, blundering policemen, absurd adventures, and improbable paradoxes, we bring you a brand-new production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious farce! The story follows the misadventures of young Frederic, an orphan apprenticed to a raucous band of pirates until his twenty-first birthday. After leaving the pirates’ way of life, Frederic falls for the beautiful Mabel, whose father is Major General Stanley. But, when Frederic’s former boss, the Pirate King, discovers the Major General’s secret plot, complications abound. Set sail with this classic comedy that boasts some of the most memorable tunes in operetta.

This event includes interactive activities for all little learners attending, a chance to sit on stage at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House for the performance, and a Q & A session with our artists following each performance.
