Plan Your Experience

Before you attend an Opera Colorado production, here are a few helpful hints to make your experience a great one!


While there is no dress code, many of our patrons enjoy dressing up for the opera. Opening nights are generally “black-tie” – it’s not unusual to see tuxedos and elegant dresses. For an evening performance, we typically recommend business or cocktail attire. Sunday matinees are slightly more casual, with men in sport coats and women in nice dresses or pantsuits.

The Ellie Caulkins Opera House is located at the east end of the Denver Performing Arts Complex, on 14th Street and Curtis, Denver, 80204.

Picking Up Tickets Will Call
Tickets that have been placed in Will-Call can be picked up at the Ellie Caulkins Box Office, which is open one and a half hours prior to curtain. The Ellie Caulkins Opera House Box Office is located just right of the entrance to Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House, at the top of the stairs, next to the Temple Buell Theatre.
