Opera Colorado marks its 40th Anniversary Season on Saturday, May 13, 2023, with a spectacular gala celebration in two parts. This magnificent evening begins with a performance from the luminous, internationally-renowned mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and continues with a glittering dinner and after-party at the Seawell Ballroom, featuring the high-energy funk band, Funkiphino.

Please join us in saluting four incredible decades of grand storytelling at Opera Colorado—this will truly be a night to remember! 

All proceeds from the gala support Opera Colorado’s mission to connect our Colorado community to the emotions and stories of the world through traditional and innovative opera and educational programming that is accessible to all.
