Another great Opera Colorado season has come to a close. Our productions of Madama Butterfly and The Magic Flute were resounding artistic accomplishments and our ticket sales far exceeded expectations. Thank you for helping us to make the 2015-2016 Season a tremendous success!
Now, we focus on the future, as we get ready to open a new opera season and celebrate our Honoree Ellie Caulkins and the 10th Anniversary of the opening of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. To mark this occasion and to honor Ellie Caulkins we will present a 10th Anniversary Celebration on September 19, 2015. The centerpiece of the evening will be a concert with the Opera Colorado Orchestra, followed by dinner and dancing. Shortly after the Celebration we will officially open the 2015-2016 Season with Verdi’s Aida. It has been 20 year since our patrons experienced Aida in downtown Denver and we are thrilled to present a beautiful production with all of the pageantry, ballet and costuming that accompanies Verdi’s operatic masterpiece. The season will round out in May of 2016 with the much anticipated world premiere of Lori Laitman’s The Scarlet Letter.
It is also a great pleasure to welcome Ari Pelto as the first Music Director in the history of Opera Colorado. Ari has been our Artistic Advisor over the past two years and we now have the exciting opportunity to create this new position to help us craft an expanded artistic vision for the future of Opera Colorado. Ari will be conducting both of our 2015/2016 productions and will take the Music Director reigns in July of 2016.
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.Donate Now
