A Voice for Opera Colorado

It is a pleasure to present four exciting operas over the next two years that represent the full spectrum of human emotion.

Greg HeadshotFrom hearts that burst with joy to those destroyed by shame and grief, Madama Butterfly, The Magic Flute, Aida and The Scarlet Letter contain the perfect marriage of remarkable music and gripping human drama.

Likewise, they represent 225 years of opera history. From the world premiere of Mozart’s The Magic Flute in 1791 to the world premiere Lori Laitman’s The Scarlet Letter in 2016, the repertoire I have selected spans the full gamut of styles, revering the time honored traditions of the operatic art form while expanding its boundaries with new work.

Whereas opera brings together many great art forms – music, drama, scenic art and dance – it is also the most expensive to produce. Over 200 individuals can be employed for one opera production, from singers, directors, conductors and orchestral musicians, to stage hands, costume and wig personnel and supertitle operator. Each of these individuals play an important role in making your opera going experience memorable.

I hope that you will take the opportunity TODAY to join our family of season ticket holders and contributors. While growing our audience helps ensure that each of our performances have a full house, the income derived from ticket sales only covers approximately 40% of the cost of an opera production, leaving the remaining 60% to be attained through contributions from generous donors. That’s why your tax-deductible gift is so important to maintaining high artistic standards and resilient finances.
