THE EVENT: On Friday, April 12, 2019, Opera Colorado will host its annual black tie gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Denver. Guests will enjoy cocktails, gaming, dinner, dancing, and both live and silent auctions in keeping with the night’s Monte Carlo theme. Entertainment will consist of a live band and Opera Colorado’s Artists in Residence. Attendees will include Opera Colorado board members, donors, corporate partners, and arts patrons.

THE PURPOSE: In addition to Opera Colorado’s commitment to presenting the highest caliber opera productions to the city of Denver and the greater Rocky Mountain region, we continue to strive for excellence with our Education & Community Engagement Programs. During the 2018 season, the magic of opera was shared with more than 45,000 students of all ages—the largest number in the company’s history. Opera Colorado is proud to serve the community in this capacity.

All proceeds from A Night in Monte Carlo will support Opera Colorado’s extensive Education & Community Engagement Programs.
