YOU MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

Stories are the essential lifeblood of a community, and Opera Colorado’s story is inseparable from its hometown. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of donors in our community to help us maintain our 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. As a portion of the partnership begins with your donation, Opera Colorado aspires to enrich your opera experience and put you one step closer to the magic.

Your support helps us to:

  • PRESENT high-quality artistic experiences, through world-class opera, curated right here in Denver
  • SERVE more than 55,000 patrons every year
  • DEVELOP audiences by introducing children (and adults!) to their first opera experience
  • TRAIN the next generation of opera performers through our nationally recognized Artist in Residence Program
